1) what is this on the roots? the little ball parts are quite hard. i am afraid to be agressive with it and pull it off cause i don't want to disrupt the latching roots .__.
2) my leaves have changed color over two weeks...are they just aging?
two weeks ago:
i appreciate your help!<3
I really dont know what that stuff is, actually. If it doesnt move and wont come off, I guess just dont mess around with it. If it begins to spread off the plan and onto things (minus what the plant is stuck to), dont worry about it. Probs just some strange anubias love goop and its trying to breed or ohgodIDK D;
The leaves of an anubias vary in color-- lighter leaves are from more light, and in low light, theyre very deep green :) When they begin to get really pale and translucent, theyre getting too much light (very high light required) or theyve been injured, or the tank isnt clean enough to their liking. :B
And you is welcome. <3333

That sounds good. Keep a blanket or cloth in there to have the bags not contact the bag your fish is in, and allow it to sit in there a while. Keep a thermometer in there to monitor the temp :D
When you take the fish out of its box, try and do so in a dark space (to avoid shock from being in dark transport)...perhaps ask a person at the mail center if you could go to a place that is darker, or if they can shut the lights off in an area for you. They might, if you explain the situation :)
(mind, it doesnt need to be pitch black or anything, but darker is better)
And then when you get home, gently and slowly introduce the fish to the light while in a darker room, acclimate at least 30minutes, etcetcetc.
And man, that blows! Why no ac?! D:
