Bcarl - You were dealing with either salt and/or other substances related to the RO filter, right? What was the conclusion of your testing?
Knock on driftwood, this has been one of my more reliable plants to grow.

At this point the case is wide open. I think we can rule out the RO water and salt theory. I get back home this week and can provide an update to my tank/repens. I do miss my carpet though....

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle!

I think a lot of my issue stems from the cories. I've read that stars melt pretty easily, but they work up a big root system and then grow. Well as the plants melt, my cories eat the leaves and the stems die.

I cannot tell if this is legit or not.
Can someone specify?

I have stars growing in low light as well. Very slow growth, no algae, no melt. No ferts except for osmocote+ tabs for the nearby crypts.
