Default So, I'm using plants as reinforcers for my Psych project...

I'm in a behavior modification course this semester, and we had to do a project where we designed a behavior modification plan for a habit we want to change in ourselves. Part of this was designing a reinforcement system for the behavior.

Thus, I get a new plant or two for my tank every week that I get up on time 5 out of 7 days. This week, I'm 2/3 so far. My LFS had some nice red ludwigia when I was there last Thursday, so I'm thinking. It'll stay a bit pinkish still under low light, right?

I considered expanding my "reinforcement system" to include tanks, fish, and equipment, but my professor hates me and would take points off while telling me to "keep it simple".

But I might do that anyway. It's not like we're getting graded on the actual results.

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'
