Anubias Congensis, Anubias afzelii, is quickly becoming a farm-raised favorite in planted aquariums and cichlid setups. Like other Anubias plant species, this variety is hardy, relatively undemanding, and robust under ideal growing conditions.
Considered a slow grower, members of the Anubias genus should not be placed in high light areas of your system to help prevent excessive algae growth on the leaves. Overall, however, Anubias Congensis is very adaptable to a wide range of pH, water hardness, and lighting conditions. Most herbivorous fish also tend to leave Anubias plants alone, which makes them great additions to any freshwater system, especially cichlid and goldfish aquariums.
