Thanks for posting a review. Although informative, it doesn't quite answer the question on whether or not it will do anything for coloring up my stem plants. I currently have a 26g with a 24" Ray 2. It grows plants wonderfully, but most of all my stems just grow green. I've been seriously considering this LED to work in tandem with my Ray 2 but I just need to know it's going to actually get my plants to color up, not just look enhanced.

Anyway... Lowe to post some PAR on the 48" Monster Ray (not sure how much is differs from the 24").

According to Lowe:
Here are some quick numbers for you on a 48" MonsterRAY.

Inches directly below unit : PAR
3" : 130
6" : 85
9" : 58
12" : 40
15" : 30
18" : 25
Being that these are ony RED, Green, and Blue LEDs, I found the decrease ratio in PAR in relation to depth very interesting.
Monster Ray...
