Anubias Barteri var. Coffeefolia
Anubias Barteri originates from West Africa and is one of the most popular plant species in the aquarium hobby. The plant is found alongside many riverbanks and streams. Their popularity in the hobby is attributable to their beauty, hardiness and ease of keeping.
Anubias Barteri produces large, oval, green leaves that are thick and sturdy. The plant will withstand the attention of most boisterous and herbivorous fish.
Care & Maintenance for Anubias
Anubias Barteri, like most other Anubias, is highly robust, undemanding and adaptable plant. They have an adapted rhizome (the main root) and roots that will attach to solid objects, such as driftwood, rocks, even aquarium decorations. For this reason, substrate conditions or quality is unimportant. In fact, the rhizome must be placed above the substrate.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Low
- Temperature Range: 65-86°F
- Tank Placement: Foreground-Midground
The plant will thrive in a range of aquarium conditions, including low light. Under bright light, Anubias will grow more compact and new leaves will grow more quickly. Anubias look great when attached to driftwood and rocks. They can be planted in substrate as long as their rhizome is not buried. In open-top aquariums, Anubias can also be grown out of water, providing that the root is submerged.
Anubias are also available potted, already attached to driftwood, and rocks.

Anubias Barteri Coffeefolia
Nice rhizome and roots. Was a little disappointed about the size Small specimens sent, 4 leaves each plant.
This is my first foray into the world of live plants in an aquarium. I was quite happy when the plant arrived (along with the only other plant that I ordered) in what appears to be excellent health during the dead of winter! No broken or wilted leaves, and no "hitch hikers" (I followed the instructions on the web site for unpacking the plants)! I attached it to a rock with some artificial thread and it is doing well after a week in it's new home.
Beautiful plant and in great condition!
Smallish but very healthy plant.
Happy with every plant I get from Modern Aquarium. Lush, vibrant and beautiful addition
Very healthy little plant, lots of roots. Beautiful!
I have one of these and just love it. Its one of my favs beside the petite. I love the little crinkles or waves, if you will in the leaves. Can't wait for this to grow as well. Beautiful.
