What Par rating / watts per gallon?

Hi

I have a Fluval Edge 6g tank with stock LED light unit on. I cannot find how powerful these lights are, anywhere?

Does anyone have the slightest idea? Would love to know.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers mate. They are good for crypts, fern, moss etc. I'm really looking for a power output rating if anyone knows.

So 39w for 6 gallons. Just over 6 watts per gallon. Any idea what par that converts to?
