I keep Hemianthus micrantheimoides in a tank with two large E. bleheri
and a lot of Hygro, Rotala rotundifolia and frogbit. All strong nutrient 
sponges, growing like hell. The Hemianthus grows like a weed too. I have 
to prune it every two weeks to keep it in check. I didn't pay too much 
attention to David's plea since I didn't know it was called "pearl grass". 
I know it by the name "baby's tears". Write me offlist so I can send you
some cuttings.
