I found that saying "everyone" does any particular thing,
when you're talking about aquatic gardeners, is like saying
everyone drives a car the same way. Sorta kinda, no, not
really -- exceptions aplenty. ;-) Lots more heuristics than

Oops. A bit of confusion here and it's partly my fault. The
Aquatic Gardener (TAG) isn't a web site, it's a hardcopy
journal devoted to aquatic gardening. The search engine is
the table of contents and your page-turnin' finger. Very
old fashioned but the pics are gorgeous. ;-)

I mentioned mainly because some of those that would read my
post that mentioned it are AGA members and thus, subscriber
-- they can refer back to it. You might not subscribe and
so that part of the post doesn't help you. Sorry if you
spent futile time on the AGA website (did yo see the pics,

Anyway,(shameless plug) one can get back issues of TAG and
Planted Aquarium Magazine at the Aquatic Gardeners
Association web site and you can get future issues by
joining for less than a couple of Big Mac dinners in
Manhattan. It's a very nice quarterly journal devoted to
wet plants and wetly growing them.

As a general comment in response to "Whew," I'll add this:
For just about every conceptual complication in this hobby
there's a simplifying assumption, and for every
complication in technique, it seems, there's a shortcut or
ersatz method.

Some of us take things the other way occassioanlly, and
some of even take things the other way incessantly, but on
the whole their's good info, good help, and lots of fun to
be had staring into glass boxes.

Good luck,
