Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #1158

Stargrass and E. diersilfolia is the closest thing I've seen yet. But that's

So the answer if you do regular water changes is no. If you suspect it
simply do more water changes and rebuild your nutrient back up to good
levels afterwards.

Show me one that is a fact and I'll keep them together to prove it wrong. I
likely have already:)
