Do you mean Hemianthus micranthemoides?

Its natural habitat was usually if not always tidal rivers, but as far as I know, always above the reach of salt. So maybe it would be OK, but I can't say for sure.

Eleocharis parvula (hairgrass), Sagittaria subulata, 'Philippine' Java fern and a few others are regularly found in brackish areas. Or are you particular to the plant you mentioned?

I do not think it would like any salt at all cause I only add alittle aquarium salt for the fish and shrimps much less than normal and after 24hrs HM turn half yellow and the hair grass turned a little bid on the tip. Did not kill them after a 9 to 10 days... of course I stop adding salt.
