I have *very* hard water. When I first started my
substrate tank, my plants turned a clear shade of brown
and the leaves soon melted away. I am guessing that there
were some toxins in my substrate. I did some water
changes and the problem was solved. My plants are
thriving now, I only wish i had more room to plant. That
"plant melt-down" will probably not come back... (knock
on hard water).

On the other hand... I have different fingers.  ;-)

Karen, I was wondering if you happen to have a home page
I can visit and learn from. BTW, im going to try that
riccia+java moss too-very interesting.
