    My anubias has surprised me. What I thought was a new leaf turned out to be a flower.

    Congrats Max :elefant:
    1. Is that a floating or planted plant?
    2. Do you have any fishies in that tank?

    (Trying to learn a bit more about plants:redface:)

    Started the tank a while ago.
    http://www.tropicalaquarium.co.za/showthread.php?t=511

    The tank is 60x60 and 40 high. The last 10 to the back is a separate compartment for equipment. So the visible part is 60 x 50 x 40.

    I have 2 pumps on it. 2000l/h and 1000l/h.

    Thanks. I was quite surprised by it.

    The anubias is on a piece of driftwood. Anubias likes it's rhizomes above the gravel, so the best is to mount it on a piece of wood.

    I have a few fish in there.
    About 20 neons.
    One rosy tetra.(Survivor of a disaster)
    Two Cory catfish.
    One bristle nose plecostomus.

    Most small fish can co-exist with plants.

    I also run Co2 in my tank for faster growth.
