Re: Heteranthera z. aka "Stargrass"

>>"Stargrass" also has a tendency to get black tips, perhaps because it is a
tender plant and easily bruised or maybe because I keep Flagfish with mine.
There again this could be some chemical deficiency, as others have
proposed -
but I suspect a mechanical cause as mine look too much like tissue trauma
when examined under magnification<<

This is the same problem I had with it. I believe it likes very clean, clear
water under direct light. At the time, I had it in a tank where I was
constantly removing plants and re arranging things, disturbing the
substrate. It did not seem to fair well under these conditions. No shortage
of light, CO2, or trace.
