HC or Glosso for carpet. Which do you prefer?
I am new to the forum and have enjoyed reading the many posts. I have kept a planted tank for many years. It is a 54 gallon corner bowfront with flourite gravel mixed with laterite. I use a 175 watt metal halide 6700K pendant and CO2 injection. The last year or so I have began to spend less and less time with my tank. But would now like to crank things up again. Basically I have anubias nana covered rocks and driftwood, some rotalla, ludwigia, crypts and a dense carpet of glosso. I would really like to replace all anubias covered wood and rocks with mini pellia (which I just recently learned about from this forum) or fissidens but not sure since I have never actually seen either plant in person. Also I am intrigued by HC. Would you replace the glosso with HC. In years past I used to keep riccia tied with hair nets to the driftwood and the pearling effect was awesome. but it would get large and seperate causing it be everywhere in my Glosso. Is HC low maintence like Glosso. And by low maintenece I mean Glosso does not have to be sheared from time to time. Does HC share this trait or does it grow thick and tall and have to be sheared to just above the substrate?
