I sometimes let my tank get screwed up, but it's more because I get lazy
about maintenance than doing anything purposely (although my wife says
that's one and the same thing...hard to argue with it). The end results are
about the same: everything goes to hell. It does produce some interesting
results, most of which aren't desireable. Ever see a massive java moss
crash? Pretty ugly. The good part is getting to try new species of plants to
replace the ones that didn't survive.
