    Nice green Tank Brams! I never had great luck with glasso, now HM has been real easy to work with..Maybe I should give it another go around.

    Zeneo, your tank has a very nice color contrast to it. I realy like the way you used all the plants in there. The Star grass(?) and anubias compliment each other very well.
    One question though, what is the red in the back left corner? Thanks

    Its some very choice lava rock. I cant find pieces that big around here. Out at our farm we have massive pieces left by Indians, we wont touch them though..

    Thanks, it was one of my first planted tanks. The Star Grass quickly began to be to fast and to large for the tank.
    It was made with red lava rock including the gravel.

    Some good aquascapes here. I've given up on glosso because the upkeep got to be ridiculous - very invasive, and when shaded would grow 'vertically'. I'd have to replant every month or two because it would become too thick in a high-light tank. I think that is part of the reason HC - and Marsilea species for those who wanted the 'glosso' look - came in favor over glosso.


    Anyone have any tricks on the maintenance of these plants? Having to uproot sections and replant every one or two months doesn't fit in to my goals for my tanks.

    Cut it - just above the substrate. Suck up the mulm and old leaves. New leaves and runners will shoot... same procedure with glosso, HC, eleocharis and marselia

    Great looking scapes Renaud. I noticed in your scapes, and some of the others aquascapes above, you guys have glosso and then some slow growing plants like java fern and anubias.

    With glosso being a fast growing plant, how do you maintain it's growth with the rest of your plants? Do you end up ripping out chunks of glosso until the other plants grow in?

    And another one... However, Glosso is a beautiful plant but sometimes, depending on needed conditions, it could be so fast spreading plant that can't be kept under control.
