I just baught an African anubia for my 27 gallon tank. I placed the pot it was in half way into my gravel. Is this OK or should I place the roots in the gravel?

I think that most anubias are rhizome plants meaning that they don't like being planted and prefer being tied to a piece of driftwood or a rock. They have small hairlike roots, which the plant will use to attach itself to the rock. Are you sure it is and anubias?

I have used black cotton thread to tie down my plants. It doesn't show up too much and will slowly dissolve by the time the plants' roots take over. Driftwood works best with the Anubias. You can drill small holes in the driftwood and loop the thread through to ensure a more solid "grip".
