 i  have  read  in  many  forums  that  glutaraldehyde  is  a  carbon  source  and  is  good  for  planted  tanks  that  dont  dose  co2.  people  in  usa  use  metricide  (we  dont  get  here  in  india)  which  has  a  lower  concentration  and  have  got  amazing  results.  but  i  read  in  wikipedia  that  it  has  bad  effects  on  mosses.  anyone  here  used  or  using  it?

 Did  you  search  for  it  on  the  forum?
 
 
 This  is  the  Top  12th  tank  of  INDIA  for  IAPLC,  and  you  can  see  the  plant  list  as  well.
 If  you  go  through  all  the  pages,  you  should  have  Zero  doubts  then.
 
 CIDEX-  seems  to  be  the  name  you  should  look  for.

 Nope  it  doesnt  affect  mosses  im  my  experience.  Atleast  not  Java  moss,  Christmas  moss  and  Fissidens  fontanus.  Been  using  it  for  2  years  now  with  no  negative  effects  on  my  plants  or  fishes

 I  affect  only  only  following  plants  accoding  to  my  experiance
 1.  Java  moss
 2.  Blyxa  japonica
 3.  Riccia
 4.  Pogostemon  helferi
 5.  Saggitaria  subulata
 
 Dilute  process  depends  upon  the  concentration  of  glut  in  your  bottle:
 For  example  I  am  using  20%  solution.  Doses  1  ml  per  10  gallon  in  alternate  days.  I  don't  dilute  it.
 
 It  is  bed  for  all  the  fishes/invertibrate  in  high  concentration.  So  use  it  carefully.  you  can  see  result  in  the  link  given  by  Saikumar  post.  It  is  heaven  for  plants  in  controlled  condition  while  death  for  fish/invertibrates/algae  in  high  concentration  so  use  it  carefully.  It  is  also  toxic  for  human  being  specially  for  eyes.

 Doesnt  affect  my  java  moss  atleast.  In  fact  mine  is  growing  like  a  weed.  I  would  say  it  is  pretty  safe  even  at  high  levels  but  you  have  to  work  your  way  up  to  it  gradually.  I  am  currently  dosing  15ml  of  2%  Glut  daily  in  my  60  litre  tank  and  it  has  no  effect  on  my  shrimp  or  fish.
 
 Nanomania  are  you  asking  about  the  dilution  procedure  or  concentration  ?

 diluting  a  25%  highest  concentration.  i  also  want  to  know  that  can  i  grow  high  light  plants  like  glossostigma  too?  as  im  not  using  pressurised  co2  because  my  parents  are  not  allowing  since  it  blasted  at  night  2am.  iv  had  success  with  all  plants  mosses  before.  i  have  seen  people  abroad  soding  only  flourish  excel  and  graoing  all  dam  plants  even  under  metal  halides.  since  flourish  excel  is  not  always  available  here,  the  ingridient  is  glut.  thats  what  seachem  declared  in  MSDS.  glut  is  actually  a  source  that  plants  extract  from  co2  for  photosinthesys.  please  let  me  know  if  anyone  has  grown  everything  successful  using  only  glut.

 Have  grown  HC  (not  very  well)  and  Hairfrass  with  only  Glut  so  you  should  be  fine  with  Glosso.  What  size  tank  are  you  planning  ?  If  it  is  small  then  you  can  supplement  it  with  DIY  CO2  for  added  benefit.
