rohansd  wrote  (View  Post):                
Allthough  I  have  never  had  any  success  with  glosso  in  my  tank  ,  I  suggest  you  plant  each  strand  separately.
 That  way  it  has  more  chances  of  survival  and  fast  growth.
 The  tank  will  look  good  when  everything  grows  in  well.                

 
 I  agree  with  Rohan  here.  Please  plant  each  strand  separately.  And  don't  add  any  new  fish.  My  Lemon  tetras  made  a  meal  of  them  before  they  could  settle  down.  And  Rohan,  that's  Hydrocotyle  verticillata.  H.  leucocephala  grows  slightly  differently.

 Hi  tirtha
 
    The  replanting  is  good.  Glosso  as  Rohan  and  Suraj  have  mentioned  must  be  planted  as  induvidual  stems  as  it  will  form  a  carpet  sooner  this  way.  I  have  always  planted  glosso  as  induvidual  stems.  The  scaping  looks  good  do  post  a  frontal  shoot  of  the  tank,  as  yopu  have  moveda  few  plants  will  get  a  clear  idea  then.  
      Just  some  info  for  you  glosso  will  take  1-4  weeks  to  creep  depending  on  the  tank  conmditions,  if  you  seeing  it  growing  tall  after  2  weeks  you  can  trim  it  this  will  make  it  give  out  side  shoots  faster.  You  can  replant  the  trimmed  shoots.  The  trim  always  helps  in  growing  the  plant  quicker.
    All  the  best!
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 Thanks  a  lot  for  your  valuable  sugessions.  While  doing  the  replanting,  I  tried  to  plant  single  stem  only.  But  my  gravel  size  is  bit  bigger,  so  the  glosso  stems  are  unrooting  themselves.  That  was  the  only  reason  I  have  planted  3-4  stems  together.  And  if  I  planted  them  individualy  then  I  would  run  out  of  space  also.  Sad
 
 @Harshal:  Glossos  are  looking  like  already  over  grown  to  me.  As  soon  as  they  will  start  to  spread,  I  will  trim  them  for  sure.
 
 @Rocky:  The  plant  is  Hydrocotyle  verticillata.  3-4  months  back  I  got  them  from  Harsh.  If  the  light  is  good  they  will  spread  faster.  And  if  the  light  is  low,  they  will  grow  long  and  creates  an  ugly  looks.

 @Suraj:  currently  I  have  only  5  Rams  and  a  Clown  Loach  along  with  5  Ottos.  I  am  not  going  to  add  any  more  fish  in  this  tank.  And  I  never  found  the  loach  uprooting  any  plants....  Smile
 
 @Harshal:  Yesterday  I  cleaned  up  the  glasses  and  algaes.  As  soon  as  I  reach  home,  will  take  a  frontal  snap  to  post.

 Now  it's  gonna  be  2  weeks  after  plantation.  So  the  updates  are  below.
 
 Positives:  
 
 1.  Rotalas  started  branching  and  looking  steady  now.  But  as  I  am  giving  a  mix  of  6500K  and  4200K,  instead  of  green  they  became  bit  reddish.  
 
 2.  Most  of  the  Glosso  weathered  out  but  there  are  lots  of  new  leaves  came  out  from  couple  of  bunches.  Now  waiting  when  they  will  start  to  spread.  Smile
 
 3.  Parvulas  started  to  give  runner.  But  the  number  is  very  less  as  of  now.
 
 4.  After  increasing  K  in  water,  Anubias  started  to  give  lots  of  new  leaves.
 
 Negetives:
 
 The  tank  became  Heaven  of  Algae.  You  name  it,  you  will  get  it.  Tip  of  the  Parvulars  covered  with  Diatoms.  Glasses  covered  with  Green  Spots  and  Green  Dust  algae.  Reat  of  the  tank  covered  by  Green  Hair  Algae  and  GBA,  Clado.  Tried  to  tweak  the  dosing,  making  water  change,  tweaking  the  photo  period.  But  nothing  happened.  Sad  So  now  this  is  the  time  to  bent  the  fingers.   Guns   Punch  Ordered  for  Excel  and  trying  to  get  some  Glut.  I  think  that  will  be  last  resorts  for  the  ugly  buggers.
 
 This  time  no  photo  cause  there  is  no  point  to  post  a  Algae  Farm  Picture.  But  within  couple  of  days  will  be  back  with  a  presentable  tank.  Very Happy

 Setting  up  a  nano  planted  tank  is  one  of  the  toughest  jobs  Thumb Up  ,  there  is  no  margin  of  error,  you  slip  on  one  parameter  and  you  have  algae.
 Go  a  little  slow  on  your  pmdd,  give  your  plants  some  time  to  take  root,  take  care  of  your  CO2  dosing.
 Grass  land  type  of  setups  look  very  good  but  are  very  dificult  to  attain,  all  the  best  on  your  setup.

 @Sandeep....  you  are  right.  It's  really  a  pain  in  back  to  tuning  up  everything.  If  you  don't  dose,  plants  will  start  giving  yellow  leaves  and  stop  growing  completely.  And  you  satrt  dosing,  you  will  get  algae  farm.  and  as  it  is  a  small  tank,  I  don't  have  the  freedom  to  add  algae  eater  fishes  of  different  types.  Once  I  added  Barbs  for  GHA,  very  next  moment  they  started  to  fingering  Ottos.   Mad   No  where  to  escape.  But  the  relive  is  plants  are  settled  down  and  ready  to  start  growing.  
 
 @Dev:  no  buddy.  I  am  going  with  DIY  still  now  as  it  is  a  2  feeter.  I  can  manage  the  required  CO2  level  easily  with  DIY  in  a  small  tank.  Bubble  count  is  fixed  to  120BPM  and  diffused  through  a  small  powerhead.  Just  changing  the  yeast  mix  after  every  1.5  weeks.

 Today  I  received  Flourish  Excel  from  Petsomania.  Before  starting  battle  with  algae  take  a  look  at  the  current  condition  of  the  tank.  Glosso  started  growing  well  but  I  feared  I  wont  be  able  to  save  them  as  they  became  just  a  algae  ball.
 
 Side  View  Of  The  Tank.  Java  Moss  and  Stones  Covered  with  GHA    
 
 
 
 Front  View  
 
 
 
 Rotala  is  the  only  plant  which  is  growing  well  and  without  any  algae.  And  every  evening  they  are  sarting  with  O2  bubbles  like  a  mad.  
 
 
 
 
 Now,  after  going  through  the  Thread  in  APC  (Excel  as  a  Algae  Killer),  I  am  satrting  with  dosing.  Today  I  will  dose  3  times  more  than  the  given  normal  dose.  That  means  5caps  (25ml)  in  22G  water.  From  tomorrow  I  will  dose  4Caps  (20ml)  for  next  1  week.  Will  update  you  with  the  result.  
 
 Best  of  luck  for  me.

 If  you  are  dosing  more  excel  than  the  normal  quantity  be  careful  about  the  fishes.  Better  to  remove  them  and  then  dose  excel  in  large  quantities  than  the  normal  value.

 Sridhar:  Yesterday  I  put  25ML  at  a  go  and  noticed  the  tank  for  next  couple  of  hours.  There  is  no  sign  of  stress  in  Fishes.  Even  they  had  their  Morning  Food  normally.  And  I  found  all  the  Ottos  are  coming  out  for  food  as  soon  as  I  switched  off  the  light.  otherwise  I  kept  a  spare  Bucket  ready  for  emergency.
 
 @Shakar:  Are  you  sure...  that  GHA  will  be  consumed  by  wood  Shrimps???  please  let  me  know  if  you  experienced  it.

 Yes,  they  do  consume  Algae  except  for  Black  Brush  and  Black  Beard.
 
 They  have  cleaned  the  GHA  pretty  well  in  my  tank.
 
 I  had  around  50  in  180liter  tank.  They  cleared  it  in  two  days.
 
 Now  there  are  hardly  few  and  not  to  be  seen  easily  but  hardly  GHA.
