    I posted this on another board but didn't receive much response so maybe
    someone here can answer.

    Can Anubias hastifolia be grown submerged long term?

    Can any of the other 'arrow shaped' leaf species be grown
    submerged longterm? ( maybe gigantea(sp?) or gracillis)


    Thanks in advance,

    In a huge tank.
    They get 3 ft tall.

    I think some species do poorly over time in the genus.

    I am putting them in my 150 so I got a bit of room.

    Three feet ,WOW! The 3' you mention I assume is for gigantea.

    Is there one species of the 3 you would recommend that I try.
    ( hastifolia, gracillis or gigantea)

    Or would I be better off long term looking for a different plant that
    has the same characteristics I'm looking for?

    I want something with a large arrow shaped leaf ( 4-5"+ ) and a maintainable
    height of around 20-24" . Can you recommend anything that would fit the bill?

    I also plan on having lower light plants growing underneath it.

    Thanks again.
