I have yet to be convinced that it's something I need. "

Given my prior post re cables, I would like to add that Karen always
seems to make a sensible, persuasive case for whatever the subject she
has taken the time to remark on--experience, well expressed, is no
small reason.  While I have a tank inspired by George.  I have one
inspired by Karen.  As a hobbyist, I have a split personality. 
Unfortunately, I'm sure that neither of these two tanks of mine looks
as good as theirs.  But the experience (the activity and the learning)
is enjoyable.

Also, I was actually quoting James who quoted George who, at least
allegedly but not surprisingly, quoted Dupla.  I just think it's funny
to talk about plants having cold feet-especially since the metaphor, in
English, refers to rising doubts rather than raising plants.

Is it right to say that Karen has cold feet about substrate heaters?
