If you do add Gibberllic Acid please let me know the results, I was
wondering whether to do this for sometime, however I only have a 10g tank so
increasing the height would not be approperiate for me :) Have you tried any
of the other hormones available on the market as well? I know that some
plants inhibit hormones to inhibit the growth of other plants which may
cause a problem in some cases however I dont know which plants do what.
