Could you please describe your 'super rich gravel', what fertilizer do you
use, and what type of gravel, and the size of the gravel.
I am going to setup a 92 gal tank soon, in which I will have many plants,
and discus. And I would like to have a Glosso lawn in it.
How far is the distance from water surface to gravel, in the area where your
Glossostigma is ??
With many Thanks
