    This does not mean it only affects this site, It now means that billions of images across the Web now display an error message instead of the image in question. :(

    Received some glosso from supply place (unnamed), 6 sizeable bunches secured with a lead band. Does not smell so hot, somewhat like mush. That said, it appears it will be difficult to separate/plant this stuff. My first experience with glosso, is this typical? This means I must separate it by strand, and plant each one? Can I drop the bunches into my newly set up tank, and leave there till I'm ready to do this? Is sending glosso in this manner, instead of individually, typical of supply places? Thx in advance.
    :gw :D :D

    If it smells bad, it may be bad.

    Take your best stems from it and clip them. And yes, you need to plant them individually... tweezers are life savers for this. Place a rooted stem in the substrate every couple of inches. Depending on the size of your tank, you really only need about a dozen or so rooted stems and in a month you'll have a nice carpet. Its really not that bad.

    Good luck.
