Enjoyed reading your Journal, glad to see you're still active. I know myself in included, interest always ebbs and flows. Especially like the angels, I'm still waffling between discus or angels.
... and Paul, you speak the truth. I bet you have a folder of canned discus newb posts at the ready.
Its easy to get pretty gung-ho in the beginning, but at least for myself; get a few fish in there and the "master plan" starts to mellow.
