I don't think they particularly like high ferts,
Not going to put any ferts in the first 3 weeks just for that reason and because of my investment in the 5000 root tabs lol half of which are in the scape burried deep in the substrate
Although I know others on here grow it like a weed, so probably just something I'm doing wrong
I'd love to grow it like a weed so we must be doing something wrong

Gorgeous corner.
Do you have a picture of all three tanks?

Your scaping is very good and I love the colour choice for the plants.
Fantastic.

Inspiring updates :wideyed:

Definitely time to trim that glosso (I always fail at trimming - too painful to cut :lol: )

Well there’s enough area that you can play with heights - and find your preference :)

I’d divide the tank into 3 zones - assuming this is the first trim, consider that for density you need to trim, once you’re happy with the density, you can allow some areas more height
Note that if your light is closer to “threshold” rather than “excess”, light shading will have more of an effect

One of my all time favourite scapes

Though there are some changes as scape progresses

(note the glosso development)
