Anubias Nana Petite | Potted
Anubias Nana Petite, as its name suggests, is one of the smallest of the anubias species and originates from West Africa. It is a very attractive plant, and due to its small size, ideal for foreground placement in an aquarium. It can be attached to rocks, wood, and other hard surfaces (when planting, be sure not to cover the rhizome). The plant produces small, round deep green leaves that are sturdy enough to withstand boisterous fish. When the plant is "happy" it will flower, producing white or yellowish flower stalks.

I got two of these cool little guys, freed them from their pots and planted them in a 20-gallon aquarium. They're already growing, though obviously they won't grow too much. Real sharp-looking plants and very healthy so far.
