    Wow. Nice photos! Is the tank cycled already?

    Make sure your anubias aren't buried or in a couple of months they'll rot (best attached to wood or stones where they'll root fast).

    Looking fantastic.

    That's a great looking tank Yankee. I have anubias growing all over my tank, attached to wood and in the substrate. The roots are buried but the rhizome is above the substrate.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    THANK YOU. Yes it had been previously been running with fish (within 3-4 days), all I did was, clean the tank, add driftwood and just maintenance dose the tank to keep the bacteria alive for the small amount of fish I was going to add to start. Then did a complete water change the evening before fish, tested that morning for ammonia, she came out clear, then went and got fish. Plants came about 2 days ago. I will look into the buried plants as I never had an issue with buried roots but this is also my first time with sand.

    With any of the rhizome plants -- Anubias, java ferns, etc. -- the rhizome must remain on or above the substrate. It's okay to bury the roots, themselves, but not the rhizomes. Some folks attach these plants to wood or other decor, others bury the roots directly and let the rest of the plant sit on the substrate. Either way, you're fine. Just don't let the rhizomes get covered up with sand or gravel. It will rot them, eventually.
