i have a ten gallon that i put one anubias nana in. I was wondering if i need to put soil under the gravel? I dont plan on adding fertilizers to the tank so do i need that aquarium soil stuff?

I have several anubias that I just have in gravel, I do however add liquid ferts, like Tetra's Florapride whenever I think about it. I found mine grew better when I just let them root into the gravel themselves. I stuck a weight on it and dropped it where I wanted it.

Most anubias are pretty hardy. You don't need any special substrate for them. I have dozens planted in regular gravel and they do quite well.
