AaronT is the one who knows. I'm sure he is right. They do look a lot alike.

The thread says he removed the glosso and added marsilea. Aaron you are good, man!

alrighty then, thanks again.

Are either of those 2 plants difficult to grow?
Im looking for a short carpet plant and glosso looks perfect.

I have Marsilea quadrifolia in a low light tank with no co2. It grows very quick. I started out with 50 nodes a little over a month ago and now I count over a 100!

Does it just spread by itself?

You plant small batches here and there, and over time they should merge together and form the carpet ?

Yep. Just plug pieces here-and-there and let it do it's thing. There is also Marsilea minuta that's supposed to be shorter. I have some and it's 1" or less and has spread quickly, even growing under shady spots where the ligth is very dim. Either of the Marsilea's or Glosso would make a great foreground.
