Just to mess you up, I grow Glossostigma elantoinoides just fine in a 75
gallon tank with 120W of light. One thing they definitely need is fine
gravel. I created a small area in the tank with fine gravel, surrounded
by coarser gravel, and planted the Glossostigma at the border of the fine
gravel area. It grew and covered the fine-gravel area completely, but
would not penetrate the coarser gravel.
