>Has anyone ever heard of or used OTT LITES. They're supposed replicate 
natural daylight very accurately. The CRI is supposed to be 95. I think that 
means color rendition index. All of the research that lead to the development 
of these bulbs is supposed to be well documented. Apparently some bird 
keepers and gardeners use them. Any info would be very much appreciated.

Ott Lites were developed for hand stitchers (needlepoint, counted cross
stitch, etc).  As one of those folks, I've tried them out and was impressed
- but for stitching, not lighting an aquarium.    They throw intense light
in a (relatively) small area; you'd need a lot of them to light anything
more than a 10G tank.   Can't speak to their daylight replication but I can
tell you that they get HOT.
