Pro Shrimp’s comment: Pro Shrimp’s comment: Anubias are great plants especially for low tech tanks. They are happy with low light and fertilisation and very robust. It’s advisable to keep them in a slightly shady area of the tank to avoid algae growth on the leaves. Good flow nearby will further reduce this risk. For a long time there is a myth going around that anubias (when pruned or cut) would be poisonous to shrimp and other inverts. This is NOT true and anubias are perfect plants for your shrimp tank and 100% safe. Snails: Dennerle is a plant grower that does not use pesticides. We try to keep our plants snail free as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee these plants to be 100% snail free. If you are looking for 100% snail and algae free plants, we would suggest the Dennerle Plant It invitro plants, which are grown in a laboratory environment and then sealed. Anubias are very slow-growing marsh plants suited to shady areas. Strong lighting does them no good in the long term. Anubias barteri is a highly variable plant with varying numbers of generally large leaves. With its dark green, slightly tough leaves it is often used in cichlid aquaria. In the wild, Anubias grow in shaded to semi-shaded locations in fast-flowing rivers and streams; sometimes emersed, growing on stones or logs, and sometimes semi-emersed. These Plants are potted and at least 15cm high.
