SubstrateSource Anubias congensis Pot  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, but without such a narrow tip.

'Congensis' can be planted in substrate; however, as is expected with Anubias species, it prefers to be attached to driftwood or stone. Simply use tying thread to tie the plant to hardscape, and overtime, its rhizome and roots will grow along the surface of the hardscape to attach itself.
