Next two shots, first is about 120' the next is about 70' down. Notice the lack of any color than blue.

Last shot is a composite of artificial light shots at depth.

But here's the trouble, corals grow from the surface where there is enormous PAR at all frequencies, then there are corals that grow over a hundred feet down, where there is practically no light. Most photosynthetic corals don't grow much deeper than 50-75' so the bandwidth is pretty broad depending on the species and the clarity of the water they evolved in. The filter feeders dominate below 100'

I was a dive master for a while and would take pictures of black coral at 140'

Ok.. The white line is showing from my tank.. The colored lines I'm guessing is your control. Because they don't move... My lux is reading 1000.. Looking that up its saying basically its an overcast day

.. These readings are 2" below the top surface..
What's your opinions?
