I think it's my favourite forground plant as well, definately easier than glosso in terms of maintenance. Like others I also noticed it grows into more leaves in low light. Here's a couple of pics...

TCB contains red 3 which is banned for human consumption as far as I know because it is a carcinogen. Red 3 is also an estrogen mimic which may be part of the reason (but not all) that it works well...

I have put sparkling gourami's in with cherries. It doesn't work, the gourami's basically form a pack and pick the cherries to death. If you want fish I'd suggest threadfin rainbows, I recently added...
