Anubias nana 'Mbuna S'


Tropical jungle giants in small size - this is how we describe our striking Mbuna trees for the aquarium. The sandblasted root wood Mopani from southern Africa is particularly rich in structure with a distinctive depth effect. "Colophospermum mopane", as it is botanically called, is a hardwood tree native to hot and dry regions. Its very hard wood has a high resistance to weathering and can therefore be used well in both aquariums as well as terrariums.

The root size S is planted with an Anubias barteri var. nana.
After some time in the aquarium, it forms free hanging, liana-like roots, creating the impression of a time-honored tropical jungle giant in small format. The design with several sizes gives any aquarium the mysterious magic of a tropical underwater jungle.
