Dito on the carpet! It must take alot of maintenance. I could NEVER get my glosso to grow so low and stay so compact. Constant trimming to keep the glosso from pilling up on itself to let the roots breathe is such a hassel.

This tank have 4 1/2 months. I started with a little bit of Glosso, but under good conditions, the growth is very fast.

Not, that requires only little maintenance. With a very powerful lighting like HQI, and a good fertilization, the carpet of Glosso remains very ready ground and very compact! And the injection of CO² must maintain a rate rather high and constant, if not the glosso tends "to go up" indeed.
