I don't think it will grow in low light, atleast my experience has been poor with glosso and not enough light, I checked the plant profiles and they stated medium light, I think you may need CO2 also to get a good carpet but it can get leggy and tall if you don't trim it, I'm no glosso expert so make sure you get a second opinion.

Thanks. I'm low-tech, low-light, and a beginner. I'm trying to find a carpet that goldfish won't eat. Doesn't look like glosso is what I need.

I'll keep looking.

Thanks.
Starougyne roots really well, but I think the fish will mow that also, maybe if it got established prior, then you added the fish.......and used say Excel etc........

Goldfish might not munch Crypts, but they tend to get a bit taller than you might wish.

Larger goldfish will be destructive towards plants. Smaller types much less so.

You might consider having a sand foreground and then background plants like Crypts and Ferns.
