It is fairly low light. Not quite as much as say, an anubias, but it can tolerate some low levels. The leaves grow on a "strand," if you will, and the "strand" grows and sprouts new leaves that grow roots and anchor themselves in the substrate. Higher light, CO2, and ferts would make it grow faster, however you can still keep it pretty healthy in a low-light setting.

Thanks for the thread rating
Yeah, I see your point. I thought it was worthy of a rating, since those CRS look awesome. What have you been/will you be feeding them? I've been feeding mine Mosura CRS Specialty food and they seem to love it.

I'll be feeding them ken's mini veggie sticks, some barley pellets from speedie, and fresh spinach. I think I have a bit of Jake's om nom nom somewhere as well.

Sounds good. Do you have cholla wood or anything in the tank with them? I recommend adding something like if you haven't already.

Yup, I have a few ugly "outcast" pieces of cholla that I'm going to put in there. They're not going to look pretty, but whatever The shrimp matter more by a long shot.

Nice. I saw an awesome cactus scape using moss and cholla wood. I think it would be cool if you could pull it off.

I added a small piece of cholla today and it's a big hit with the CRS. 9 of them are now grazing on it. The rilis don't care too much, however it's only been in there for a few minutes. I'm trying to get a picture, but the cholla is behind a large cloud of guppy grass.
