Anubias on Wood

Recommended Posts

I have seen some questions about different types of Anubias, using wood, etc. lately.  So, I decided to post a few pics of mine after a monthly trimming :

These are all varieties of Anubias glued to Mopani wood or rocks.  The wood is a good way to give Anubias some height and create levels.  This is still a work in progress as Anubias grow rather slowly :)

Looks nice.

Is it easier to glue them on to the wood or the rocks?

It looks wonderful! Do the roots on your anubias get real long? If so, do you regularly trim them?

Mine do and run all helter skeltor :) I kinda like how it looks wild with roots :krazy: I imagine some people trim their anubias roots, but I don't :D

I definitely have the helter skeltor look with my anubias :)  I do want to trim them a bit though.

I cut them about once a month.

Sorry Jared but here is my crazy anubias that's been tied onto this rock with fishing line. Then there is the issue of the :yikes roots!

That's his crazy fish that's changing colors, like Quinn. I believe her name is Miranda :hmm

She's a stunner :heart

I don't know if trimming the roots spurs new growth.  I just don't like the way they look when they get too crazy.  

 

I've had the Oranda for about 3 years, now.  Originally, I named it Giniro (Japanese for Silver) but changed it to Miranda when it changed color to blue and then back to Giniro when it went back to Silver.  I also can't figure out the sex of this fish, thus the use of "it" :rofl

I don't either! I like the way it looks with the roots hanging down below the piece of wood it's tied to.

Jared, I am so sorry about your underfed, boring coloured fish.  It must be so disappointing to see 'it' pine away like that.  I'm sure that plenty of people here at Kokos would take the sad little thing off your hands.  :rofl :rofl
