    I think this forum is awesome and SUPER informative, but would love to see a sticky or section about lighting... because I know basically nothing about choices of lighting other than the very basic strip lights that come standard with most tanks, and from what little research I have done there are TONS of options out there in terms of type, placement, color, strength, etc.

    Just a thought! :)

    I could be wrong but IMO having a sticky or section on lighting is difficult because lighting needs seem so dependent upon individual circumstances (types of plants, etc.). I think most people have been able to inquire in the technical or tank set-up sections and get their questions answered - unless someone else besides yourself thinks differently : )

    i think he means the type of lighting, how eficent they are, what to expect to pay, the general watt/size and a pro/con about the light it self. with some reasearch it shouldnt be too hard if no one else does it i might do the reasearch and see if i can get it stickied :P
