Anubias Barteri

Anubias Barteri originates in West Africa. It is found in various rivers and stream areas, growing both submerged and out of water. Like most Anubias, A. Barteri is a highly adaptable, undemanding, and ideal beginner plant. The leaves of Anubias Barteri are thick and strong and even the most boisterous, herbivorous fish will not be able to destroy them.

Care & Maintenance for Anubias Barteri

Anubias Barteri will thrive in varied water conditions. Lighting is not important and the plant will grow well even under low light conditions. The plant does not require any special substrate. In fact, the main root, or rhizome, should not be buried in gravel or substrate. Instead, it should always be placed above it. Alternatively, and preferably, the plant can be attached to solid surfaces such as rocks, driftwood, and other aquarium decorations. You can use a piece of string or Scaper’s Glue to attach the plant to the surface. After some time, the plant’s roots will do the job themselves, keeping Anubias firmly attached.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Low
  • Temperature Range: 70-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Midground-Background

Anubias Barteri looks best when used in the midground areas of the aquarium. It looks really great when attached to rocks and driftwood, creating a naturally looking piece of nature in your home aquarium. The plant propagates from side shoots or by dividing the rhizome.  

Anubias Barteri is also available potted and grown on driftwood and rock.  Other varieties of Anubias can also be found here.

    I never thought I’d order plants online and have them shipped over going to my LFS, but my first order made me a believer! The plants are in better shape than my local store, and I haven’t found any hitchhikers yet. Amazing for plants shipped in December!

    This is my first time I used Modern Aquarium company to buy plants and I feel very satisfied with my experience. The website was user friendly and was very easy to navigate. The plant arrived on time and all of them leaves looked green and healthy. I will be back for more plants.

    This was my first order and I was impressed with the entire process. My plants arrived early and are all very healthy. The anubias looks amazing in my set up and is already showing growth.

    I'm slowly planting my 55 gallon tank with real cichlid friendly plants. All the plants are healthy, great roots and a very good size. They don't get lost in my tank.

    Came in fantastic shape! Beautiful thing that isn’t growing as fast as my other plants (it’s only been a few days though and I love the size of it so it’s not a concern or anything) I put some Java moss within it and around it and it makes the perfect little nesting/housing place for my small fish/invertebrates

    Great plant!

    The plant I received looks awesome. The leaves look great and there are plenty of long roots to wrap around drift wood. Exactly what I needed to brighten up the front corner of my new aquarium.
