Is an Anubias Congensis good for my tank?
 
Have been getting some very good information from members. I would like to add some plants to the tank. I have a 10 gallon tank that I have just started, still going through the cycle process. It has taken a long time. Was looking to add a couple of Anubias Congensis to the tank. Is it a good and right plant for my tank?

I am new to the fish world. Need all the help I can get....

3 zebra danio
2 pepper cory catfish.

Thanks
Ashey

I'd say it's a good plant for you to try if you're new to it all. Anubias are pretty easy to care for and are slow growing plants which means you probably won't have to fertilize or anything like that. The only thing I'm not sure about and you might want to look into is how tall the plant gets since it's going in a 10g.

Thank you, I will try one.

Anubias are great plants and very easy. However, Anubias Congensis grow very tall and so would be too big for a 10 gallon. I have one that is about 2 feet tall. You would probably be better off looking for Anubias Nana which are a dwarf size and would be a better fir for your 10 gallon.

Anubias are bog plants though so if you dont have a lid, you can have it grow out of your tank, some people scape their tanks that way and it looks amazing..
