You just don't understand the lust of collector's mania.  I want it!  I
want it!  Some day I will get organized and get them all planted nicely in
tanks like Kasselmann shows in her book.  In the meantime it can wait on
the shelf until I get around to providing it utopia for plants.  It is a
good thing that plants don't have nervous systems.  Actually, the only
plant I have that is close to endangered is Cryptocoryne parva, and I am
taking good care of that one.
