sure, on a 24" long light (ray 2 dual 7,5k) sitting right on top of a 60p.
Right below water surface 485 par
middle of tank 117 par
substrate 70 par

now its possible my clubs par meter is wrong, but everything else i tested with it was consistently accurate. These results were taken with the apogee par meter. I will be interested to see what the o.p's readings are. Im not stating the finnex light is poor, it works very well for many, i just wasn't a big fan of the par graph, and decided on something a little more progressive. I wouldn't rely on your manufactures provided par data, with how many lights you guys probably sell Lowe, im surprised you don't pick up your own meter.
