I recenlty biught some pelia ( im experimennting with different lowlighting foreground plants) and the guy at tha store said they were low light, low fert, and low CO2 plants. Is this true (it also goes by the name pellia or monosolenium tenerum)

Monosolenium tenerum is the accepted name for pelia now. I find it does ok with or without CO2, with low to high lighting, and zero to high-level fert addition. Higher temperatures (29C or more) turn it brown though. You can tie it on wood/rock like moss, but it's also happy lying about unattached.

I think it is MUCH better to contain it somehow. If you don't, it can become a major pest.

It looks better with higher light and co2, but will, as stated above, grow with lower light conditions.

I had a small sample that I split between my low and high light tank and both disintegrated.

No clue what was up with that, as the stuff is supposed to be really easy to grow.
