I'm surprised by the relatively low-light conditions advised for
Echinodorus and Sagittaria.  Is it your experience that plants in those
general grow well at the low end of the lighting range?  I find that
they tend to "reach" and get ugly, or just don't grow.

Also, some Crypts are definitely *not* low-light plants and trying to
maintain them at the low end of the lighting range can only fail.  I guess
this is just the inherent result of generalization.
