Most commonly, people will arrange their scape in the tank, and take readings from all over your tank front and back at differing levels of height. They then take a FTS and put the par readings on the picture where they took them. If the tank is empty, then fill with water and take 3 readings on the front, middle, and back at the bottom, middle, and top. This will give us a full detail of how the light distributed par and is a great baseline for those fixtures.
