It should have a par chart with values @ depth for that light. I'm thinking you'll be in the 30-35 range at 24". Should produce anyways.

At this point I already purchased the Plus Pro, if I need more light (which I don't right now) I can look at adding another or possibly bringing over my dual T-8's to add in the mix.

Brookster,

The only data I could find from the MFG was this:

http://current-usa.com/wp-content/up...Comparison.pdf

12" 100+ PAR from the comparison chart.

But I am only growing low light plants right now, so that should be more than adequate for the situation.

I just searched and couldn't find it.. there is a chart with values up to 18" I believe. Would give you a better idea, can't find it now. Give me a little bit.. I'm in the case!

I presume the bottom numbers are how far off from center of the light?
