Oh really? 

My source water has so much copper in it you could hammer it out for
jewelry! The highest recorded level for the past year was 7.8ppm. There are
a variety of plants in my tanks; Java Moss & Ferns, Vals, Crypts, an
assortment of stem plants, Najas, floating type plants etc. NONE of them
seem to respond poorly to my water.

I ought to go tell my plants that they should not be growing so
well--especially the Java Moss! <g>

(who thinks it was some other parameter that caused the Java Moss go south)
