There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

You have 4x72w over 10 gallons???? So a total of 288w???

Even if you had 72w it is too much!!! How can u manage not to get algae???

I grew is submerged and plugged each stem as far down as i could until just a little leaf was showing. It took forever to plant individually but will be worth it in the end....hopefully.

How the heck did your plant grow so damn fast? I have my HC on DSM and they don't grow as fast as your, although my light is not as strong as yours. I have a 60-f (8.6 gallons) 4x24w but only use 2x24 8hrs a day.

I guess that the stronger light you have the faster the plants would grow. Maybe I should turn on all 4 bulbs for 8hrs and see the difference, hehe.

Very nice, you must be pumping in a lot of Co2 since you don't have any fish.

Gotta love hornwort for starting up tanks like this. Even if you don't keep it long term, it sure gets the tank through that first month or two. Tank looks very nice. Excellent job with the glosso.

Thank you , when it comes to glosso I don't think you can have too much light , the stronger the light the more compact it seems to grow.

Had to take out the hornwort, i was getting tired of trimming it every 2 days and it was shading the glosso too much.
