All I can say is, I had a bunch of glosso just recently that wasn't growing or rooting very well. I realized that I could boost my CO2 more, I did, and BAM the glosso is now threatening to take over...

Yeah, but that doesn't mean that partially depriving the plant of some set of nutrients/fertilizer won't help it live longer.

Yeah, they're SAEs. And they don't eat the glosso, they just rummage round in it for stuff to eat, causing it to become uprooted.

SAEs with glosso?

Hi,

I've got some SAE's that are getting fairly large and aggressive, though they are still eating lots of algae.

I've also got a new glosso carpet that for some reason is having difficulty...

So, if we think we might have a nitrogen deficiency, could this be solved by feeding the fish more?

Thanks.
