Yea that's what I expected to read...Glosso really is meant for high end lights which really is a shame cause that makes it not work for any of my set ups / fish.

Yeah...strong lighting is one of the major factor.
However, I've grown glosso nicely in a 11gal nano tank under 2x 15watt T8. It's not as strong as compare to this tank :D
