I have the first generation, non-dimmable models over my 300, So they are at 100%.
In the back tank I'm using one with just the blues on, at 100%. I posted PAR numbers in this thread somewhere.

Yep. It's the Taotronics straight blue and white models. That's 3 over a 7' tank. I now have 4 over an 8' tank that's 6" shallower.

-after I stone that wall, I'm going to add a little bar in front of the tank, so you can enjoy your beer, and the aquarium. Just a 12" or so overhang at the bottom of the tank.

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?
Here is the answer to your question about the Seneye Spectrograph.
1. The thin colored curve is the sensitivity of the human eye to colors. If you notice it peaks on green and yellow. It dips down on blue and red. This curve is fixed and the same to all units.
2. The heavy colored curve is an ideal curve for an efficient lighting fixture. It gives you a guide to follow. It is also fix and the same to all units.
3. The white curve is the actual reading from your lighting fixture. It may change minimally as you move around your sensor but your PAR, LUX and Kelvin readings may vary significantly.
