    You need significantly higher light output and preferably CO2 injection to grow glosso well. Lower lights tends to make glosso grow vertically if at all.

    Muriatic acid works much better. I actually had a piece of a rock fly off from the reaction. Vinegar won't always cut it.

    Perfect. Only variation for me is that I don't dose on Saturday, but I do dose the macro (powdered) ferts right after the water change. I also add some Flourish Excel daily, but that's optional.

    Overpriced.

    For value, Coralife is the way to go. For superior lights, Tek Lighting, or AHS retrofit kits are the way to go.

    I have zero experience with crypts, but usually, when plants start growing up only, it means they want/need more light. When they grow bushy/sideways, it means they have enough light.

    If that's all in your 33g tank, I'd say no on any more fish, as that's already overstocked (Especially with that pleco - assuming it's the common variety). Also, get rid of the mondo grass. It's a...
