    Hi OFL, how are you?

    Solar Finally Ate some pellets, weird little Guy, he wont eat pellets in his tank, he has to be removed into a Jug, Threw some soaked pellets in with them, and he gobbled them up.

    Good to know-you can cut the rhizome an make more plants-I would wait until you have more growth on the plant and in the mean time I would do some research on best methods to propagate your plant.
    On my lily bulbs and apon corms-I cut the leaf and roots away and plant-leaving the bulb and corms to re-grow a new plant.

    I got a reply saying that Anubias leaf will not sprout roots, only the rhizome. It would be nice if I could cut the rhizome, since I would like 2 seperate plants, but should I wait until the anubias grows a little more, since I got it from the lps just a month ago and the rhizome is only about 2 inches?

    I am not sure if the Anubias leaf will root out or not, I want to say no...but, a lot of my aquatic plants have sprouted roots just from a leaf, but they are stem plants and one of the easiest to propagate.
    I would ask Byron-he would know....
    As long as the leaf is not actively decaying I would use it as you are and find out yourself if it sprouts roots and tell sorry I couldn't help.....

    Hey Oldfishlady! I have a quick question about anubias-
    A leaf of one of the anubias plants fell like a month ago and I've just let it float in the tank all this time. It's not rotting or anything and the leaf is still green and looks healthy. I don't want to remove it since Ares is using it as a bed, but I'm just wondering if it will grow into a seperate plant?

    Congrats.......yes, they can survive without the father, however if he is not eating them I would leave him.....but...sometimes better safe than sorry if you want lots of fry to remove daddy
    See if you can lure him away from the nest with food or something and net him-I would place him in something small and clear first and wait for him to spit out any fry he may have in his mouth and then put him in his home to recover-note that he may get a bit depressed after you remove him from his fry for a day or so and this is normal-sometimes you can put him close to another Betta to take his mind off his fry if he seems too depressed for more than a day or so........
