>>Secondly, I bought a plant IDed at the store as "Pusillia sp.". It is a
plant with grasslike leaves about 3-5 mm across and 40-50 mm long. Anyone
know what it might be?<<

My bet would be Acorus gramineus v. pusillus.  This is not a true aquatic -
though some folks have luck with it for a while... prefers cooler water,
looks great in terrestrial bonsai plantings & would probably be lovely in a
palludarium.  If you end up liking it, the cheapest way to buy more is in a
regular plant nursury - just be sure to root prune it hard before submerging
it lest ye get stinking mass o' rotting roots.
