Anubias Pangolino is a very rare miniature species of Anubias. Aquarzon has seen some incorrect information circulating regarding Anubias Pangolino being the smallest Anubias. It is actually one of the smallest but not the smallest as the world's current smallest known to the aquarium hobby as of early 2019 is Anubias Mini Coin which is extremely rare. Although having said that, Anubias Pangolino in its own glory is a truly stunning plant that is really small and beautiful.
It is a lovely and very small Anubias with narrow, oblong leaves. It is much smaller than Anubias Nana Petite commonly sold in local fish aquarium shops. As shown in our photos here, the leaf size of Anubias Pangolino is about a quarter in size compared to the leaf size of Anubias Nana Petite. This Anubias looks stunning as a special feature foreground or midground plant. We love using it in our shrimp and moss tank.
This Anubias is a strong plant which can remain healthy in an aquarium with low lighting and without Co2 supplementation. However, it has a slow growth rate, considerably slower than the common Anubias Nana Petite. While Anubias originates from Africa, Anubias Pangolino was produced when it was cultured and cultivated by Dennerle nursery in Germany. The name "Pangolino" was inspired by Pangolin and given by Mr. Massimo Ianella from Italy who tested and found this Anubias to be able to grow while continuously maintaining its miniature form.
Our Anubias Pangolino which we are propagating was originally purchased from a very experienced Australian hobbyist in 2018. All Aquarzon Anubias Pangolino are 100% submersed grown in our aquarium and are guaranteed to be healthy, clean and ready to be planted in a new aquarium straight. We also ensure that they are free from the dreaded Anubias disease which causes sudden melting and can infect others. They are only offered for sale once it meets our quality control standards.
