The Glossostima is going to require alot of light and ferts. Otherwise it will grow tall and not spread as fast. Are you up for the challenge. What is your setup?

honest to god, all i have is a 30 gallon tank, a driftwood, some other plants in my ten gallon that is growing way too fast with the lighting and CO2, with some neon tetras, and black tetras...i want to swap everything over to the 30 gallon, but i need sufficient lighting too. i am in the process of getting a light, but would like to know what is the best 30" light you can find for the price that will do the job. can anyone help?

your welcome, oh and a word of advice. stay away from the odyessa fixtures. in my opinion they are junk. the light is the most inportant thing you don't want to over look. niko could also help you make a light.

You might check out this Coralife dual T5 strip. I believe crownman here at APC uses them. You would probably need 2 fixtures. They are very slimline.

It is about the least expensive I have seen.
