I've got native BG and both feed (periodically) and aerate. I am considering adding CNBG to hopefully cross into the natives to improve my growth potential.
Everything I've read about any hybrid species that are capable of reproducing is that eventually one side of the cross (or the other) eventually becomes more prominent 2 or 3 generations down the road, especially if GSF are involved in the hybridization.
I have naturally occurring crosses due to limited numbers of WM, where they've crossed with BG, so adding CNBG to the mix doesn't bother me at all.
Unfortunately, I dont have enough knowledge of those in your heading to be able to give you my opinion. I'm sure someone will be happy to give you theirs tho.
