Those numbers are at 18 inches above the tank. You could drop them down a bit to increase the par greatly.

So with a quick visit to the store in between the wedding and the reception, I did get in to see the folks at the store. As they were busy, and my time was limited, I only managed to find out they are using Bridgelux LEDs. I don't know anything about them so after work I'll go see what I can find out about that brand I also did get a copy of the new RHM and they have a half page add.

I would think that'd be the case. Thanks for clarification. Could you guesstimate of what the levels would be sitting on the tank or is that one of those nearly impossible things without meters and such ?

Lots of fixtures use those LEDs. They work great. I prefer Cree LEDs, but light is light.

I really couldnt. There's a lot of factors in par rating. However, here is a little workup of par levels at different heights where you can get an idea of how much it drops off

Lighting an Aquarium with PAR instead of Watts

Thanks for passing that along, Mebbid. I'll check that out after my 15th consecutive workday, lol.

Awesome read. Unfortunately I think I will have to read it 12 more times to take in all that information
