    There are many existing sources of information concerning Water Features; this, and other, forums, manufacturer and distributor websites, YouTube, trade shows, etc. For the most part, the information as relates to construction/installation is fairly accurate. There is, however, a real void in regards to easily obtained, accurate, scientifically sound information concerning water quality, fish and plant physiology, the food chain/carbon cycle and other organically related subjects. Most of what is readily available is anecdotal, hearsay, old wives tales, myths or just plain misleading claims by manufacturers.

    My questions to the members of this Forum are-
    Would a website devoted strictly to the organic and biological aspects of Water Features that only offered access to scientific, peer reviewed research articles be of value and interest to you?
    Would you be willing to pay for access to such a site, whether by subscription or per use basis?
    What particular features would you like available on such a website?

    It would be nice to have a place to get the correct info for guy's like me that are more geared towards building than being a biology major. I would subscribe if the subcription is reasonable. It would also be cool to have a quick Q&A so you don't have to search endlessly for the CORRECT answer/advice.
