NFC: Some basic research needed

Sometimes I feel I can't wait to retire.  Hey, only 25 years (give or 
take) to go!  Why?  Well...

One of the things the aquarium hobby needs is some basic 
research on some very controversial, yet very simple to quantify, 
issues.  If I had the time and money, here are some projects I 
would like to tackle.  I would run controlled experiments to 
determine the following:

-Is there any relationship between "stray voltage" and lateral 
line/hole in head disease?

-What is REALLY the best substrate to use in planted tanks?

-How effective are the different types of protein skimmers, and how 
do you determine whether it is sized appropriately?

How about it guys, what would you add to the list?
