I got more anubias yay!

Since my tiger lotus is still growing and hasn't filled back out I felt my aquarium looked so barren. Yesterday I got 2 more anubias(and a African butterfly fish). The one I already had is the big one to the right, the new two are the left one and the one in the middle below the driftwood. I haven't decided where to put the one under the driftwood yet, I might put it in a different tank XD

all my high light plants are doing horrible, I think I'll get a LED hood eventually.

here's a photo

Haha! They are VERY hard to kill.
Had one in a bowl for 2 months without any sun or fertilizers. The water was almost gone when I finally decided to pay attention to the plant and was perfectly fine when I pulled it out. Only had to get rid of one yellow leaf.

You can look into bulb plants, they are super hardy.
I have onion plants (large variety) that grow like crazy and will live in pretty much any conditions.
Also the darf lily (i think that's the name) is a very fast grower and will survive very harsh conditions.
The problem with the two I mentioned is that they grow very tall so they will cover your tank with leaves.

@copperarabian: sorry for piggybacking your post.

Oh yeah I had an onion plant, I thought it looked like palm tree ish. On the base of it, it kept growing some NASTY thick sticky goo and the leaves starting yellowing one by one.

Oh, btw sorry to the OP not trying to take over your thread O_O

Aww thanks! I loved my aquascape in my 16/17g and I've been sad I can;t make this tank as pretty XD Once my tiger lotus is back up and running I'll like it more XD

lol it's fine XD It's only bad when it's someone asking a question and people start talking about something completely different without the answer ever be answered. And you still in the same topic too lol.

Anubias are awesome, I love mine so much and hope the 2 new anubias do well. The only bad thing about anubias is sometimes they don't do anything and it's really boring. I have one anubias that hasn't grown a leaf in nearly a year and is super tiny.
