How To Temporarily Store Anubias?

  1. Rack Member Member

    I bought some Anubias from my fish store because they were offering them for cheap, problem is I currently don't have lights for my tank, I was thinking of putting them in a fishbowl and put it near my window, should I place it in direct sunlight or non direct?

    Non direct is better as anubias don't need a ton of light. In fact they can and have "burnt" their leaves when they get to much light. You can just toss them in a bucket and keep them in a well lit room and they will be good for several weeks. Just do a bit of water changing every now and then.

    They're really very easy to care for. I had one in a small QT tank with only indirect sunlight for weeks. (I moved the inhabitants out but couldn't find the time to empty the tank.)
