    Great idea, do you have anyone in mind? you may want to pm that to me - just in case, i'd rather not embarrass anyone into doing a job they have no time for.

    But will the most interesting lighting actually be the best lighting, i think the person best qualified would be one that totally understands the concepts of how the lighting can affect the tank and it's contents.

    Also what lighting works best for what - best kelvin ratings for growth and colour etc, and combinations - even brand names as most guys/beginners don't know what quality tubes/bulbs they're getting.

    I would love to get Sanjay Joshi, but I reckon he is a little busy.

    I would suggest anyone interested in taking it on, I think you need to have an aptitude to it.

    All the spectrum analysis, light field, lateral lines, kelvin ratings, colours etc. confuses me terribly.
