Yep!!! Indeed a great link. I use to use this link for differentitaing different anubias in the past.
Yep!!!! The arrow shaped leaves require higer amount of Co2 to thrive and high intensity lights but i have not come across the debate of life of anubias of these being short lived, If you have can you please point me the link. Note that the arrow leaved ones are gonna be more slower in grow and these would to me be demanding plants like the other hardy rosette or stems.
I have had Hastifolia in the past, Like the one that i gave you, That plant was a cut from a massive rhizome and was re-planted. and the original rhizome is atleast 4 times bigger and still makes my black ghost take a shelter underneath. And the original rhizome is 6 months old.
Also i do recall a couple of other of my friends who had gracilis and have kept them since an year.
Gabon i can only tell you my experience only after a couple of months or may be a year as this is the 1st time that i am also seeing it and having it in my aquarium.
All in all these plants when it has a PH which is acidic to neutral and has a bit excess Co2 can thrive .
I have been trying to maintain a Co2 conc of around 30PPM at a PH of 6.8 - 7.0 and a KH 10.
I did the measure ment of PH and KH a month back. Note that i have been using Azzo gravel and Seachems onyx which maintains my PH and KH.
