Plant Separation Anxiety
Hi, my name is Reginald2 and I suffer from plant separation anxiety.
I feel like I should preface this with: I live in a place where I can't buy aquatic plants. I'm not saying that as a justification, just a reason.
It started with the microsword. I was so happy to find two or three single blades, half covered with black and brown algae in a neglected chain. I don't even get the thrill from the new runners anymore. The thing is, I can't picture my tanks without it anymore. Next it was the Vals. Purchased, melted, and then nursed back to life. They're way too tall, (even my cat trims them) they don't look quite the way I imagined them, and I know I need to move on. I just can't bring myself to do it.
The Wisteria is where my real problem is though... No, the wisteria is how I know that I have a problem. It's a weed, the tank has too much light for it, and the thing has crossed halfway across my tank. I can't stand to look at it anymore, but I can't bring myself to get rid of it. It grows too dang fast, I can't keep up with it.
This is not where I want to be with my hobby right now. I want to be expanding to new and different plants. I want to attempt cohesive scapes that are not just a smattering of all of my aquatical possessions. I need your help planted tank. Maybe I just need to get all of this off my chest.
I don't live like this. The axe falls swiftly when closets get too full, when the only place for something is under a bed, or when I cant find something in the kitchen. I suffer no excess, I ship off what needs to go to Goodwill and discard what I don't need/want. My counters are clean and my desktop uncrowded.
I recently got a new tank. But instead of rejoicing and planning a new underwater world, I find myself trying to figure out where to squeeze in my current plants.
