    Can we grow anubias without gravel? If so what would I anchor it to?
    Would I need co2 to grow it? If so how woul I get co2 into the tank? Or would it survive on the co2 exhaled from the fish? Would the fishes waste be enough to fertilise the Anubis or would I have to fertilise it?
    Thanks,
    Guppygalore

    yes, you can grow it without substrate. You an anchor it to a rock, or driftwood, or a decoration. You can use fishing line to anchor it, or even super glue gel. It can grow without CO2 or fertilization, although it will grow better with those things.

    Anubias is one of the hardiest plants - it doesn't take much for it to grow.

    + to above. If you don't have fishing line you can use sewing thread.

    Ours is tied to a decoration using 100% cotton string from the Dollar Tree. The roots have grown out around the decoration and down into the substrate while other roots reach out into the water. I'm hoping that it will anchor itself to the decoration before the string rots. I tried super glue gel, but we kept knocking the plant loose during water changes.

    I've tied them to driftwood, but the last time I used Loctite gel super glue. Easier for me.

    I have always used either fishing line or rubber bands.

    I have also found it to be a very very easy plant to care for and will grow easily
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Hello thanks for all your replies. Just one more question how would we propagate it? Would we just cut it at the rhizome where a branch is and just anchor it on to something?
    Thanks,

    yup. Just slice through the rhizome, and then you've got two plants.

    Woah! I might have to do this with ours soon. The rhizome is just starting to grow past the edge of the decoration. I should have done it when we first bought the plant. Double the plants for your money \o/
