I have only recently begun keeping live plants in my tanks, and the water quality improvments are real. In my 75 gal. I've gone from accumulating 20-40 nitrate per week down to 5-10 nitrate per week consistantly. I LOVE anubias. Not only very tough and hardy, but also grows in low light and doesn't need to be "planted". And its a beatifull, low growing plant. But for nitrate controll I would recommend fast growing plants like hygrophyla, anacharis, hornwort. I'm sure additional anubias-es would help with ammo/ nitrate, but anubias is a slow grower, and some variety will add interest to the tank as well as being better at controling nitrate accumulation.
