That is what I have been thinking. But people keep saying that I will "get algae" and "push my plants to there limit". Since I don't have any fish in the tank I can just turn up the co2 and just try to keep things balanced, couldn't I?

Chaoslord Like your tank.
Top off your Glosso and replant tops inbetween what you topped off . It will carpet for you . It's like mowing your grass.

Zefrik As you can probably tell I am getting fed up with the glosso. I cannot for the life of me get it to carpet!

Zefrik Just some updated shots. Got an Iphone 4s since they dropped in price. It takes better pictures than my old cellphone.

Zefrik I am having no luck with the glosso. I think I don't have enough light because they are growing upwards and not really sending out shoots. Should I start thinking about getting another T5ho fixture?

Zefrik Update after move pics.

The tank is going to have to grow back in but hopefully it will start to get back to normal.
