So, would that make the finnex fugeray medium light level on a 40 breeder?

Directly under the light, yes. But the light gets weaker the farther off center you go from the light. So you will get higher light directly under it and lower light at the front and back.

Just clarifying this:

Finnex Ray2
50 gallon: medium light
40 gallon: medium-high

Finnex Fugeray
50 gallon: low-medium
40 gallon: medium light

BML:
50 gallon + 40 gallon: high light

Is this about correct?

Assuming the par ratings are accurate then yes that sounds correct.

Are these charts accurate? Finnex RAY II & FugeRAY PAR Data If so, would that make the light levels we guessed incorrect?

Those results are basically junk since they were done in an empty tank. The par levels I posted are more accurate than those.

A few more questions:
1. Is co2/glut necessary in medium light?
2. Are liquid ferts acceptable in medium light?
3. How often are ferts to be dosed? How much?
4. How often should the light be left on?
Sorry about all these questions
