Subject: Help me write the Lighting FAQ!
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.3.95.971203140139.31121A-100000 at luna_wrq.com>

I posted a request a week or so ago to r.a.f.plants and have gotten some
responses, but I really should have posted here first.

I'm shortly going to be revamping the section on the Plant FAQ that deals
with the age old questions about what kind of light and how much light to
use on a planted tank.  The current info in the FAQ is just a complicated
way of saying 2-4 watts per gallon, so I am simplifying..  In addition, I
was thinking of including some real world examples to show the variance,
as well as some different choices in lighting types.  Here's where you
guys come in:

Tell me about your planted tank.   
  Names of Plants, how they grow   
  Lighting (type, number of bulbs, wattage)
  Other (fertilizer, fish, etc.  mostly optional)

Thanks for your help!

  - Erik
