Your photos are a tease. The glosso looks amazing, even in the shaded areas, so tight and uniform. I guess the Metal halides do the trick. I had issues of it growing stringy the second it was in the shade with 130watts over a 20g. :rolleyes: O'well. Great Job!

Wow, the plants look so healthy and lush. The glooso, it is so perfect it looks almost artifical!

Thanks all for comments :)

Not some "secret", just a well done nutrition and lighting ... A very nutritive soil and a big lighting by HQI (near to 1.2 W/L).

The GLosso love it !!!

Nad please give som info on dimensions and lighting schedule.
Tank specifications :
- Tank => L 110 cm * H 55 cm * P 50 cm - 300 L (250 L in final)
- Lightning => 300 W HQI (2*150 W) - 5.200 °K (BLV) -10 hours per day
- Filtration => external canister EHEIM 2026 + external canister TetraTec Ex600
- CO² => injection in the canister, 2 bubbles per second, 12 hours by day
- Substrate => Deponit-mix (Dennerle) + Latérite + Zeolith + TourmalineBC + Heating cord 25 W
- Fertilization : Profito (Easylife) + Ferro (Easylife) + KNO3 + PH2PO4

I had a similar lighting with 2x150W MH 10000K for 80(l)x50x55(h)cm, with canister CO2 with the ph controller, but I always had thread algae problem, I always thought it was the lighting, too much for my aquarium.

What I find hardest in this aquaticplants hobby is to keep the tank so clean and tidy. You have surely done that, this is the tidyest and cleanest tank Ive ever seen!!

After you trim it according to the photo you edited, how long does it take to have the even bushy effect, would that be instant or would it take same time for them to grow some stems?
