ANUBIAS NANA PETITE...
- On sale!
This is a special listing for a customised plant pack based on your budget and needs (which you can type in the "Order Notes/Comments" when you check out).
We will go through your Order Note/Comments thoroughly and we will then customise a plant pack specific to your selected budget and needs so that you can have the ideal/very suitable plants to create a beautiful aquascape based on your selected budget and needs.
All you need to do is to select your budget and when you check out, just type your aquarium tank details and any request if you have into the Order Note/Comment section which appears near the Shipping Address column. You can also message us your tank photo if you like (optional but beneficial).
Our plants are manually rinsed for cleanliness, carefully packaged with multiple layers of protection to ensure safe arrival and individually labelled for your easy identification convenience upon arrival.
Almost all of our plants are also aquarium submersed grown to minimise any transitional melting issues (emersed or tissue culture plants usually suffer melting issues when planted in aquariums which can raise organics and ammonia levels, leading to algae issues which are dreaded especially in new aquariums.
Elevated ammonia can also harm fish and shrimp while melting leaves can encourage growth of BBA algae, hair algae, etc.). We want to give you the best start to a healthy aquarium so almost all of our plants will be quality aquarium submersed grown (it has much higher growing costs for us but it will significantly reduce any potential mass transitional melting issues which is not good, especially for a new aquarium).
Your aquarium tank details should include the following information:
-Tank Size (liters)
- Low or High Tech (whether you have Co2 or no Co2 supplementation)
- General list of plants that you currently have if you can remember
- Type of Aquascape and look you want to achieve (below are some examples)
Here are some aquascape types which we can focus on:
- Nature aquarium / Rainforest and jungle aquascape (popular)
- Dutch aquascapes
- Low-tech plants aquascape
- Japanese Iwagumi
- Island-style aquascape
- Moss scapes, mountainscapes, Avatar-style scapes
- Unique/less common plants-oriented aquascape
- Aquatic and semi-submersed part of terrarium and Paludarium
(aquatic part of Exo Terra terrarium, Dooa terra base, etc.)
(If you are not sure what aquascape you would like, no worries. At the very least, just let us know your tank details like size (liters), whether it is low tech/high tech and we can customise a nice, mixed variety plant pack that will give a natural and beautiful appearance to your tank. If there is no Order Note/Comment left for us, we will prepare a mixed variety plants pack just following the selected budget).
We will provide you with the right plants that will match your budget. In most cases, we would provide even more. For example, if your budget is $150 and you had paid $150, most likely when we customise and pack your plants pack, there would be around $180 worth.
What we do recommend is to set the right budget for your aquarium.
To estimate, a budget plant is usually $15 a portion. For example, Christmas Moss around 6x6cm portion is $15, Anubias Nana Petite foreground plant 5-7 leaves is $15, Needle Leaf Fern 10+ leaves is $15, a bunch of stem plant of 6-10 stems is around $10-15. So a $150 plants pack can get you around 10 different types of budget plants if you specifically want every portion to be different. In some aquascapes for example jungle and rainforest theme, it is necessary to have multiple portions of a certain plant such as Peacock Moss or Christmas Moss because you need sufficient coverage to create the natural effect. So a $150 plants pack might get you 5 plant types X 2 portions each.
If you want a stunning aquascape with some rare and unique plants to be included in your pack as special feature/highlight plants of aquascape, then a budget of $150-$300 or more would be necessary as 1 rare and unique plant might already cost $30+.
Here are some examples and a general budget that suit:
