This can usually be combat with fertilization, usually potassium (my guess you may have had a high bioload with too much phosphate). Otocinclus can be good options for leaf cleaning, but they tend to be communal, and you need a fair bit of algae load to support them, and they don't do well with larger or aggressive fish, so they're not good matches for most cichlid tanks. Depending on what type of algae, may types of shrimp make good cleaners as well, but just about any except the smallest fish will eat them, so only suitable with carefully selected tankmates.DJRansome said:The problem with anubias is that get covered with algae and the leaves die. I had success keeping it off with CO2. Or you can clean each leaf carefully as often as possible.
I don't know about fast but definitely easy for us. We have very good luck with anubias tied to rock or driftwood. We do absolutely nothing to promote the plant growth and I find myself trimming them a couple times a year. I just move the cut pieces to other tanks. In some of our fry/grow out tanks I just wedge the anubias between rocks to hold it down.Joey85 said:Hey guys just wondering what your opinions are for an easy to grow aquatic plant..
I seem to have no luck with them, just want a simple growing plant that's gonna thicken up and
Is easy and fast to grow
Thanks in advance
