Thanks for the recommendation on the Tiger Lotus.  I'll check it out. 
Some other folks have mentioned that that my red plant might actually be 
the emersed species Alternanthera sessilis which won't work submerged. 
I *just* received my Kesselman book in the mail, so I'll be checking 
that out, too.  :)

Thanks for the tip.  I had just reinstalled Mozilla, and the new 1.3beta 
apparently defaults to composing messages in html.  Yuck.  I had written 
a few messages before I realized what was up. :)
