    As far as getting the tank started should I only put fast growing stem plants in and then put the slower plants in later? Or can I Put the slower growing plants in along with the stem plants? I plan on having some grasses, java fern, java moss, glosso and maybe one stem plant.
    Glosso can grow in medium light, but it will grow up and not form the dense carpet you want. It's rather finicky, and oftentimes, still doesn't stay low with 4+ wpg and pressurized CO2 sometimes. Plus it has a relatively small root system so it pulls out easily until you get a dense mat. If you are starting off, I'd say stick with marsilea. You can try glosso, but just my two cents. I have both in my tank.

    Yeah your probably right. Since this is my first planted tank I should probably just go with the marsilea. The glosso looks so good though. Do you have any pics of the marsilea in your tank?

    When i first start the tank can I plant the slow growing plants along with fast stem plants or should I wait to put the slow growing plants in after the tank has been a little more stabilized?

    I don't have a recent pic, but I've got a thread in the plant section somewhere. It got pretty dense, then I sent a chunk to a fellow forumer. I would just put the fast growing in at first until things settle.
