Anubias Gabon is a relatively new in the Anubias family. It is comparable in appearance and coloration to Anubias Barteri and sprouts leaves that are rounded and pointed. Anubias Gabon has visible veins that run along the leaf's surface and offer an interesting texture in a planted aquarium.

Like other Anubias they are a flowering plant. They have low to medium light requirements and thrived from regular fertilization. CO2 is not necessary but can promote faster growth and more robust leaves. Since its a slow grower, the leaves are susceptible to algae growth if placed under high lighting.   

Propagation is easy and straightforward; simply cut or pull apart rhizomes to be replanted. Make sure to keep the rhizomes above your substrate or the plant can begin to rot.
