Algae. I spend way more time cleaning algae off my rocks and glass than doing anything else

Does anubis need high light or co2?

No. Anubias and Java ferns only need lowlight but will also grow in medium or high light. They grow very slowly and if you have more than just a couple of fish in the tank they will get enough nitrates and enough phosphates from the fish food. However, as with all plants, adding extra nutrients and some form of extra carbon will cause them to thrive even better. But it is not necessary for them to look nice. OS.

Old Scalez said it. They are super easy. I have one that I bought at petsmart about 1 1/2 ago in those little tubes and now the rizome is alittle over 6" and has flowered. Great plants. I love anubis.

Be careful though what you buy in those tubes. Ive found that just cause they sell them as aquarim plants some of them are not fully submersible. Do some reserach before you buy.

Freds may be good but are they generous? My LFS has offered me a 20g they were maintaining at a local pub. I have to take the assorted goldfish that are in the tank but Free 20g with lights, filtration and a stand I like freebies

Anubias can give you a good display of green roots if you tie it to something above the substrate. It will eventually grip driftwood or rocks with the roots and rhizome and cover them like vines.
