I know there is algae on the side of the plants, but are those small plants glosso?

That looks like Duckweed growing in algae. I see it growing like that in the stream at my dads house.

duckweed has rounded leaves like glosso, but duckweed is a floating plant.

A good way to tell them apart is that Glosso produces runners, and Glosso will have a developed root structure.

I'll go tout on a limb and say that is definitely duckweed.
