While searching for a good light for the high tech 10 gallon ADA Tank I'm planning for this summer, I cam across this post. I wanted to visualize the data in the post, so I threw the data points into Excel and whipped up a quick graph. The graph gradient is outlined in the original post: low light
, medium light
, high light
. It doesn't contain all the lights listed in the post as a lot of them are designed for marine use and have PAR values so high it skewed the graph. I'm posting it in case anyone else finds it useful.
I'm also very curious to see PAR ratings for the Marineland Aquatic Plant Lighting System
[marineland.com]. It's similar to the Marineland Reef Capable light but at a freshwater temperature. Has anyone seen data for this light?
