Does your approach to planted tanks match your investment philosophy?

       This list has "active" aquarists, testing all elements daily, adding 
this and that by the hour, and doing big water changes every couple days.  On 
the other hand, I'm sure many, if not most, follow a more "passive" approach, 
as promoted in Diana Walstad's <A HREF="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0967377307/102-2553175-0819320">Ecology of the Planted Aquarium : A Practical 
Manual and Scientific Treatise for the Home Aquarist</A> .  Plant it, let it be, 
enjoy what grows, and don't sweat it.

       It occurs to me that this division is similar to that between two 
investment camps.  Active investors work on their portfolios daily, trying to 
beat the market.  Passive investors believe that the market is not 
predictable, so the only way to beat the crowd is to not try so hard, and 
save the trading costs.  (Plant it, let it be, enjoy what grows, and don't 
sweat it.)

       Are you the same in both areas, relatively active or passive?
