Any questions? Thoughts? Gripes?


The article I have written was largely taken nearly verbatim from my journals.

There was another group I visited, which I would also like to write about.

What I would really like to hear is what people didn't care for in this article.
Unanswered questions. Gripes. Whatever.

It would only serve to make the next one better. And don't worry- I have a thick skin and can take constructive criticism easily.

Not that I mind the compliments. {grin}

Sadly I didn't catch your article (is there a link to it somewhere)?

I did however have some questions about 'another' article of yours. One from 2003, that had me search you out here.

I've been thinking about putting together a nano reef and trying to find out more info regarding the use of LEDs and if this ever truely became viable or not ?(Might be a good idea for a new article)

You had some photos of Tullio's tank using 3 LEDs back then. Your readings on his tank didn't give me all that much faith in what he was doing. He has 23 mE/m2 at tank bottom when it should have been in the mid 200's. Did he really require 10x more light? Did you ever follow up with him?

I've emailed Tullio as well just out of curiousity to see if he has any comments on how long the tank lasted.

I did notice that he's now CEO of a copmany in NY that is designing lighting products, but also noticed that the only true use LEDs seem to have today is in moon lights.

Any thoughts on the subject?
