@lmhicks101, this should provide some interesting reading:
I really enjoyed classes on light and sound when I was in college.
I also spent a lot of time with programming and creative apps for graphics, art, color, sound, music, and synthesis.
One note about RGB: I am willing to bet that each color LED in a Fluval light is actually an RGB LED trio, tuned to a specific output.
I posted in another thread about color models that addresses how we actually produce and perceive colors.
I fell in love with tide pools on Rexhame Beach in Marshfield, Massachusetts. I was amazed at how much life was in each pool next to the rocks. You could follow the tide and find all sorts of cool stuff!
