Not much of an update in terms of pictures. I think my light is a bit too high. I posted a picture to show the height. On my last tank (plagued with algae), it was half way between where it is and the tank. I am planning to lower it slowly but I will probably add 2 hours to the photoperiod first. I did trim the glosso as many similar plants can start to carpet better after a trim with no other changes, right now most is growing upwards.
On the plus side, their is growth though probably not to noticeable in the pics, especially after I trimmed here and their a bit. More importantly, no algae. Way better than my last try.
