I have cabomba, wisteria, anubais, amazon sword, frogbit, duckweed, anacharis narrow leaf, a small crypt, giant hygro, bacopa caroliniana, subwassertang, java moss, hornwort, and a few other clippings (guppy grass, java fern) in my 5 gallon...I love it and so does my fish!

It's pretty new, only set it up a couple weeks ago. It's a NPT, so I have only done water only changes...so far it's doing great :)

Thanks for asking! He is doing great!!! Definitely had to have been PetSmart's breeder. I bought this little guy from PSP, and he's a joy!

Definitely what I'd like mine to look like. For some reason, it looks like my anubia is dying. The tank has LED lights, and I don't think they are helping. I just don't think I can replace them with a different light.

If you can switch them out, it'll help. I have another 5 gallon that came with LED lights (kit from Walmart) and the only thing I have in there is a marimo ball, hornort (that won't grow even though it goes nuts in my other tanks) and some pothos pieces. If that's the tank you have, you almost need to buy a new hood for it because there's really no way to switch out he light. I have a compact fluorescent 6500K bulb on my NPT and it definitely grows stuff! My anubais is kind of iffy, two of it's leaves are damaged and yellowing but they were like that when I got it, not sure if I should remove those leaves or not so I just left them for now...

That's how my anubias is. Some of the leaves are yellowing, and when I got it, they were all beautiful and green. I definitely need to look into getting a new hood to fit.
