Solution Clarified (?) solution | Comment 5 of 12 |

Let F(n) stand for the nth Fibonnaci number.

The sequence in question is F(F(n+2)+1)

At first I thought it was just F(F(n)) but that would start off 1,1,1,2,5,...

Because the sequence of F(n) starts 0,1,1,2,3,5...  it needs to be shifted a bit.
