The accuracy of the monitor is not in question here. I am just explaining the interpretation of the monitor display. Meaning the PAR reading depends on where your sensor is located at.

I had an oddysea fixture and the ballasts kept blowing out on me so i trashed it. One of the ballasts was smoking when it died. Not a very good product imo.

I am curious to see the spectrograph of your new Taotronics.

I mean the seneye graph under your new fixture so we can see the difference compared with old fixture you posted last time.

This is the middle of my tank

So according to this my par value is awesome!! But with LEDs who knows what the true reading is... My Lux is good and kelvin is off the charts... But looking at the thin line. My blues are under 450 . And I have very little red.. How important is red! I'm sure I could throw in some red LEDs .. Or is it not that important?

Red is unimportant.
