i came across this spread sheet as i was surfing the web.
the spread sheet helps calculate and classify the type of lighting you have, i do not have enough experience to say how accurate or helpful it is maybe someone else can weigh in on it


THIS IS NOT MINE, nor do i claim any credit for it. All credit is for the creator (still trying to find the persons name)

its in an excel format

Very nice find Paavn,

I am going to play around with this a bit. Help figure out what type of bulbs I want to setup my new low light tank! Great generalized lighting tool.

Thanks to the author.
