I'd ask what kinda regulator he's selling and find out why he suggests getting it hydro tested IE is there a possible leak you should know about. other than that seems pretty cheap.

Glosso is more invasive and tends to attract algae more than HC so I wouldn't recommend it if you think HC is hard to deal with

oh i see. i have no idea on their difference as i haven't seen them side by side. if anyone's familiar with the Aquascapes store, is HC the one on the ~18G tank they have on the corner next to their emersed plants and is glosso the new tank at the window (currently starting and growing algae badly)?

I know the tank next to the emersed plants has HC in it but I'm not sure about the other one. You can tell the difference between glosso and HC by the size: HC leaves are about the size of a grain of rice and makes really thick mats/mounds vs Glosso leaves might be 2-3 times that and has very visible runners the creep along that gravel.

Yes, that's HC growing in the tank in the corner of Aquascapes. Try asking if you could buy a portion from it.

thanks! haha, i doubt they'd agree to that but maybe i should try. been wondering why they don't grow those themselves since foreground/ground covers are very popular and in demand...

A few months ago, I asked for rotala 'butterfly' when he was growing it out in that same tank, and I got a few stems before it went on sale. I'm growing out a large patch of HC emmersed to sell in the future

Keeping with the thread, anyone got Tonina sp. to sell/trade? I already have 'Madeira', 'Belem', and 'Fluviatilis'.
