    Hi,

    Johan here from PE. I'm a returning hobbyist wanting to start a planted tank or two again. This time want to do medium and nano tanks. I had about 20 or so planted tanks for a few years in the early 2000's. Mostly 2 and 3 foot tanks and about 3 large ones. I ended up getting rid of all my tanks when we moved into a house with wooden floors (not strong enough for a tank). Now I'm keen to start again.

    I'm really keen to get my hands on some glossostigma. I have several of the amano books and would love to get a carpet of small plants going. Closest I got before was java moss and one tank full of crypto nivelli. (If I recall plant names correctly)

    Welcome back into planted tanks...let the swearing and frustration begin!! lol

    glosso was BIG a few years back...but since then most people moved over to HC and MC more recently. You should still be able to find some glosso from members trimming (keep an eye on the classified section) or through an online aquatic plant retailer...
