Has anyone ever dry-started glossostigma? Thinking about doing a "professional" plant setup in the 5gal with the substrate, C02, the works. Was thinking about glosso for the carpet and I've read that it some times takes better with a dry start.

Wanted to do a micro reef but the more I think about it, the more the I feel the tank is too small for any fish. I'd have to be content with a boxer crab or two and some live rock, maybe some ricordea polyps. Never mind that my LFS, much as I like them, assured me I could put an ocellaris clownfish in there. No.

I have glosso growing emersed and it is seriously running rampant. I just used old ADA Amazonia I had lying around and give it a spritz with my spray bottle every now and then.

HC also grows well emersed. Mine is spreading runners everywhere.

Here's a picture of my emersed set-up.

not ignoring you DQ, just generally only posting when I have something to say. I'm too worn down for general chatter. 20 days and I'll be done

I like that glosso stuff. Does it grow in regular gravel? Bc I don't want to do black sand and all that until I move and get a larger place so I can experiment with that sort of thing.
Pretty soon I'll be going to the library and spending the day there pretending to write these papers. I have 2 history papers to write, insanity and stuff. ThesearemylasttwohistorypapersformyBA
