    Sounds good, is it still at Chads? I work about 5 minutes from his house and can pick up pretty much any day after work.

    I'd have it back by the next day or the day after that...Chad let me know when is a good time for you.

    I'll wait my turn, but if he's going to be slow I could literally pick it up tonight probably not leaving work till 7pm and do my testing and return it to chad tomorrow night.

    What did you end up with? (Just being nosy) :)
     
  16. Jeremiah

    Jeremiah Cuttle Fish M.A.S.C Club Member

    Well the frag tank was at an amazing 35 par with just the blues so got it to around 80 with whites then lowered light to get it around 120.

    need to get a second light because I don't want to lower it more....one of those cheep Chinese LEDs since that is next question.

    may try and just do one higher power Evo.

    my main tank had 575 at the top and really poor spread so raised it up so that the edges went from around 75 to over 100. Middle sand bed also was around 100 and with raising it increased that with over lapping of lights to around 150

    What is the par meter and what does it measure?

    Photosynethically Active Radiation (PAR)*meters*measure light intensity within the spectrum that plants and corals use most to photosynthesize (excluding UV light) from 400 to 700 nanometers, which covers both the blue and red spectra of light.
    It basically measures the true performance of your light.
