livebearers and plants

     Thanks to all of you for encouraging my livebearer/plant tank.  It 
seems all I have left to do is try it :).  For those who wondered, I
prefered soft water because a) my tap water is usually soft and its easier
not to mess with changing it and b) I have another tank with soft water,
cardinals, etc. and would prefer the conditions be somewhat similar so if
I moved plants between them the shock would be limited.
