Anubias care and propagation

Anubias is a unique plant in that it spreads by rhizomes not roots. These rhizomes do especially well when not buried in the soil or substrate. Instead they are glued to wood or rocks and can be easily propagated that way. Anubias is a hard plant and is great for beginners. Some favourite species include anubias barteri, anubias pinto, anubias nana and anubias nana petite.

In this video i use anubias nana petite and show the viewer how to divide it properly as well as glue to a piece of wood to make a small tree.

A guide on tying moss to Stainless Steel Mesh

Here is a guide I made tying moss to SS mesh to produce moss pads which are perfect for shrimp and foreground planting in aquariums. Tying moss to SS mesh enables the aquascaper to fully mat out their foreground with a carpet of moss and is perfect for breeding shrimp as it increases foraging surface area. 

My favourite moss is weeping moss but you can use flame moss, peacock moss, willow moss, christmas moss and other mosses to the same effect.
