Well, Bill, Heaven knows I'm no plant Guru, but I've had the same thing 
happen (fluorescent tube in that tank was WELL over a year old LOL), but I 
moved those puppies to another 10G and, as you say, it is a wonderful 
foreground plant.  Now, if only I could figure out how to use this new HP 
camera, I'd show everyone :)

Growing old is inevitable . . . growing up is optional!
