OP, what are you doing with that anubia? Looks like it's on steroids. Do you use ferts?

Haha thanks!

Haven't fertilized my tank in a while actually. It used to receive a lot of ferts, now it's surviving on whatever junk is in the gravel and the lights!

What a beautiful Anubias! Can those be floated also, or do they always need to be tied down?

I think they can be floated. I'm no expert, however, so tank my advice with a grain of salt.

... aquarium salt?

Yep anubias can be left floating. It doesn't need to be tied down to grow.

Thanks!!

I found mine flourished the most when I fit it to the weight and buried the roots. But I heard they can be left to float.
