What's an aquatic plant that looks like Anubias?

kymmy1

I want to have Anubias in my tank but I'm afraid my Congo tetras will chew them all up. Is there anything that looks similar?

Anubias is really tough, I doubt your Congo Tetras will do much damage if any.

I've heard they like to munch on Anubias particularly. Hope you're right

Drop in a couple of algae wafers or offer a lettuce leaf occasionally, that's how I dissuade my barbs from chewing up my Nymphaea and Echinodorus leaves. A full and happy fish is less likely to eat your plants I've found personally.

However, if you really don't want to risk it, then go for a fast growing species that even if chewed on will just put out new leaves and roots in response.
