[APD] Re: Need fast growing, low light, low maintenance, floating plant

* From: W C <iceman_78_98 at yahoo_com>
......I've recently tried Water Sprite and had terrible results with it.
Not only did it not grow, it also ruined my water
raising the ammonia level to 5.0ppm as it slowly
withered away. The Algae on the other hand had no
problems using the light giving me a tank full of
green water. .......

I doubt that the water sprite died from not enough light. I bet it was some kind of nutrient lack, probably lack of iron. Was the new growth pale? If there was enough light to produce green water, then that should have been enough light to grow water sprite.
