Thanks Cheryl. Thats good to know. I was reading that B. japonica likes really soft water. So I'm guessing the aubertii does as well. My GH creeped upto 8 on the last test, so I yanked out some crushed coral, and after a water change I'm back to 6. I'm going to do another water change in a few days and get it down to 4 or 5 GH, so hopefully that will help. I'm also getting my NO3 down at the same time which might help color up some E. stellata.
And I really like this plant too! The salmon pink colored tips next to green is too cool.
