    I have two Anubias that i recently moved to a 10 gallon with a mystery snail and a Betta. Every since I moved them into there they have been shrinking and i don't know why. They get three plus hours if sunlight every day. I do every other week water changes (%25).
    Any Help Is Appreciated!

    What do you mean by shrinking?

  3. FishFor2018Well Known MemberMember

    The leaves seem to have gotten smaller ever since I put them in the tank.

    I really don’t think that’s possible. Can you post a picture of it?

    I”be never had live plants so I might just be overreacting. Lol

    That’s an amazon sword... Those are new leaves that are forming.

    Omg lol the employee from the store said it was Anubias! Thank you! Is there anything special I have to do for Amazon swords. Right now they are tied to a Little Rock thing with fishing line.

    Plant them into the substrate without burying the crown, that’s where the leaves come from. They don’t really need anything special but they would benefit from an occasional root tab.

    Okay on it. What is a root tab? Sorry I’m new to this
  11. bryangarWell Known MemberMember

    It’s a small tablet which is full of nutrients that you bury into the substrate. It feeds the plants through their roots. I’d recommend the flourish root tabs.
