Hey guys,

I set a tank up about a month ago with two axolotls. I have recently been looking to buy some live plants to add to the tank to help with water quality. I found someone selling anubias nana and anubias nana petite online and thought these looked okay. However before I pay and go pick them up, I was curious if these plants looked healthy? The only thing that worried me was the leaves appear to have some white dots on them that I am not sure what they are. Could these be harmful to my axolotls?

It's hard to see what you're talking about. Can you take close-up photos?

Can you describe the white spots better? Are they oval, slightly smaller than rice-sized and glued onto the leaves? If so, they could be the eggs of nerite snails, which are not harmful don't hatch in freshwater because they need brackish water to reproduce.

Good luck.
