Collectoritus

Subjective question here. Sooooo..... How many species brings one into the collectoritus category for a 40B?

This is a loaded, eye of the beholder question but Im lookign to get a feel from you seasoned pros' opinions at what level you find scapes tend to start looking disheveled, choatic, discombobulated, etc.. from an overload of variety.

Thoughts?

You know you've got collectoritis when you're still cruising the SnS with no room in your tank to plant another stem. You then say eff it and buy the stinking plant anyway. Some how you're always able to make room for new plants, even though there's absolutely no room left. If this sounds like you, you've got collectoritis my friend. That's the easy part... now to make it all look good .

LOTS OF TRIMMING and selling/RAOKing to the SnS!!

You know when you've got collectoritis is when you are not adding anymore plants to your already crowded tank, but adding more tanks for more plants you want to add to your collection.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
