This Anubias variety has more narrow, pointed leaves than its relatives and is perfect for the middle ground of a planted tank!


Anubias frazeri (Anubias barteri x A. heterophylla) is a very tall, attractive Anubias hybrid that is well known in the aquarium hobby due to its attractive appearance, durability, and ease of care. Its deep green, thick leaves stand out and provide valuable refuge for aquatic animals. Like virtually all Anubias plants, it is extremely hardy, undemanding, and can thrive in a variety of water parameters. 


Care for Anubias Frazeri is identical to other Anubias plants. It is best placed in the middle ground and will look its best under low to moderate lighting. Excessive lighting can result in unattractive, pesky algae growth on its leaves. However, this algae growth can easily be kept under control in an aquarium with a healthy population of shrimp (especially Amano shrimp) that will constantly graze on the algae without harming the Anubias plant itself. Most herbivorous animals will not harm Anubias Frazeri whatsoever, although some biofilm/”wood-eating” Panaque genus plecos may “chew” holes in its leaves.  


Like many Anubias species, this plant is slow and steady in growth and does not seem to respond to CO2 supplementation as highly as many other plants. It does best when attached to driftwood or rockwork. It can be planted in the substrate but its rhizome (roots) must not be completely buried in the substrate or it will rot and recede. It can also be planted emersed in terrariums, paludariums, and viquariums.  

No aquarium plant distributor/nursery/wholesaler/retailer can or will guarantee their plants to be 100% snail free. We can not guarantee our plants will be snail free.

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
