GulfCoastAquarian, thanks for your reply. To be honest, I don't know what my NO3 is. With the population of my fish what it is, I never even considered that there might be a shortage of NO3. I am not sure what my PO4 level is either—algae, while not a huge problem, was present, so I assumed PO4 was there in sufficient quantity. After reading your post, I did go to my LFS to pick up a bottle of Kent's Potassium Suppliment. I will let you know if that takes care of my problem. Thanks again for your reply. I appreciate it.
Wasserpest, thank you for your reply. As my Glosso died it did not change color but seemed to disintegrate—in much the same way that plants leaves do when changing from emersed form. (Although, the leaves of Glosso in question here were not emersed form leaves.) I hope you too solve your Glosso problem.
Oh, GulfCoast, you might be right about Glosso being a water column feeder. Apparently my substrate has more than enought nutrients as my "slow growers," Dwarf Anubias Nana—planted in the substrate—and Dwarf Hairgrass are spreading so fast I am beginning to worry that the Glosso will not have any room in the event it ever does take off.
