Anubias nana 'Bonsai'


Lava is one of the water-neutral decorative stones in aquaristics. It has a knitted surface, therefore it is also called "knitted lava", is particularly porous and light and thus offers an ideal colonization surface for useful bacteria.
This is especially advantageous for the beginner with his first aquarium. Due to their porous structure, lava stones are optimal for planting with so-called "perching plants" such as Anubias or Microsorum.
A beautiful contrast to the reddish lava stone is the dark green Anubias barteri var. nana 'Bonsai' - a real enrichment for every aquarium
