Here the very popular in aquaristics, robust and quite undemanding dwarf spear leaf Anubias barteri var. nana (also called Anubias nana ) was cultivated on a pretty amphora, which makes a great cave for a small to medium-sized catfish or a dwarf crab or small crayfish. The amphora is approximately 15 x 6 x 12 inches, closed at the back, and was formed and fired from natural clay - each piece is a little different than the next! The beautiful terracotta colored catfish amphora with Anubias nana can be well integrated into a beautiful plant layout or even a catfish tank.
Shrimp also like to take this cave, as well as it is conceivable as a hiding place for smaller South American dwarf cichlids. Because the relatively bitter tasting Anubias are not eaten by Tanganyika or Malawi cichlids and are therefore considered perch resistant, the amphora is also great as a hiding place for a Tanganyika aquarium or Malawi aqu arium.
The dwarf spear leaf Anubias barteri var. nana grows very slowly. Anubias barteri var. nana also feels comfortable in the shade of taller plants or in aquariums with rather dim lighting. The slightly shiny, strong dark green leaves make the dwarf Anubias a great perching plant for the foreground to middle ground.
You canpropagate Anubias barteri var. nana by cutting off a piece of the rhizome, which should still have at least two leaves on it. Since this dwarf spear leaf grows very slowly, you may have to wait a relatively long time.
Anubias grow best as epiphytes or epiphytic plants if you tie them to roots or stones. If the green rhizome is planted in the ground, it can rot, which can also cause the leaves to die and the plant to die. For this reason, you should never plant the rhizome in your offshoots either!
The dwarf spear leaf Anubias barteri var. nana can also bloom under water from time to time. The flower is white and likes to be nibbled off by shrimps or catfish.
The catfish amphora from Dennerle planted with Anubias nana is pre-watered and therefore 100% shrimp safe. You can put them directly into the aquarium without pre-watering.
By the way, Anubias barteri var. nana can also be cultivated very nicely above water in an appropriately humid environment; this makes the planted amphora a nice hiding place and accessory in an aquaterrarium or rainforest terrarium for land crabs. The Anubias can also come into bloom there.
