OLEDs won't make it big for aquarium lighting, at least not for the forseeable future. The main use of that technology is for displays. It'll be neat to see it come out as a lighting source, as they...

Kribs can be much like dwarf puffer, in so far as that they can be nasty little fin nippers.

They don't do much damage with one bite, but they're persistent little buggers.
