    Hi Everybody,

    How long does it usually take Anubias to attach securely to a piece of driftwood?

    If you use black cotton thread to attach it to the wood, by the time the thread disintegrates it'll be attached. Takes a month to six weeks.

    Thanks Dave. Shorter than I thought, and didn't know the cotton thread disintergrates. That will make things easier.

    Interesting that this thread was started--I was just going to post one about this but don't need to now!

    I do also have another question--do anubias HAVE to be attached to wood/rock or can they be placed in the substrate?
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    I don't think you're supposed to plant any rhizome plant in the substrate, but you could let it float I guess. I do that with my java ferns and some of them just attach themselves to something somewhere in the tank. It looks more natural than having them tied down with something, except when they attach themselves to algae growing on the upper part of the tank wall.

    I have mine rubberbanded to a piece of driftwood. Do you think I will have any problems removing the rubberband after the anubias mounts to the wood? (I plan on cutting the rubberband)
