glosso trimming(pic)


[IMG][/IMG]
My gloss needs trimming, starting to grow upward. It is also taking over some plants.
Do you just hair cut it or pull it all up and start over?

Nice, healthy-looking plants. Darn, why do I have to have algae?

I think most would advise to pull & replant. I'm doing that, mostly because of my algae issues, however.

Thanks, I am noticing as it gets taller the leaves underneath are dead or dieing. I think I may pull it. I am kind of afraid of a large algae outbreak from the goodies underneath it.

Hey John does dwarf hair get out of control like glosso to where you have to pull it?

No, not really. It doesn't choke itself quite like Glosso does. That said, it's hard to clean/vacuum in the "sod." Did I mention my hair algae problem?

Thanks for the comments.

That is not the whole tank just the left center because of the glosso question.

The green plant is creeping jenny.

John do you have any recent pics of your tank?

Here's the other side, it is still not done yet. I keep deciding to change things too often. [IMG][/IMG]

All the bubbles are from a proaucatics 2400 canister(petsmart). They were trying to get rid of them for 60% off so I fell for it. reg. 100.00 for only 40.00
260gph rating which seems pretty close. The only problem is it is catching air from some where, can't find it. It does not change ph with the air bubbles. I have no surface agitation. Just makes for bad pics.

I also have a xp2 with inline reactor which works fine.

No, sorry, no recent pictures. I'm waiting until the algae goes away!

Your canister filter may have a small leak somewhere.

During the day my xp3 burbs like no other- it doesnt do it during the day- it might be sucking all the little bubbles from my plants.

How long did it take for the glosso to get that big?

[IMG][/IMG] Hi marc, the xp 2 canister is fine, the proacuatics 2400 which is sold at petsmart was sucking air. Not sure where from, but when I clean recently and restarted it it stopped doing it.

The glosso is about 5 months old. I just had to pull it and replant it. here's a recent pic.
