    I dont think so, its not an aquatic, its a terrestrial so you cant. You can with U.gibba though.

    Use sand blasting sand a good mix is 50\50 peat\sand. Let the plants go from flooded-moist-flooded and so on. Keep in partial sun or under flourescent light.

    Yeah! Its to unstable, the fish need minerals in the water to buffer it... some more than others.... distilled water is way to pure

    what happens is that distilled water which lacks all minerals will pull mineras such as calcium out of the fishes body till both the fish and the water have equal levels of calcium and such. i forget the term, i dont think osmosis is quite right but its based on that principle. note this doesnt happen in a few minutes or even a few hours. it takes awhile. i always use distilled or RO water to fill my tanks but there is always some old water plus i leave some old snail shells in there that will disolve slowly adding minerals to the water.
