Like other Anubias sp., Anubias barteri variation congensis is a robust plant that is often used in cichlid aquariums. Not only can it tolerate minimal light, but its tough, leathery leaves are generally left alone by fish; this frees the plant to function as a natural, biological filter, purifying water by absorbing nitrogenous waste. Add beauty while improving the overall health of your aquarium through these resilient freshwater aquarium plants.
Compared to its cousins, A. congensis grows longer, narrower leaves that extend from long stems, which can create a free-flowing look in your aquarium. The leaves form an acute shape, similar to Anubias frazeri's lanceolate-shaped leaves"
