<side note:>  FYI for those of you that haven't been to George's
house:  I don't think there is any such thing as better growth.  George's
plants and fish want for nothing, are HUGE, and grow (I think) pretty
much at the maximal rate to the maximal size.  I guess that's what
you get if you go all-out on the high-tech, full supplement spread, and
daily attention.  ;-)))
