What do you think about this lights for a planted aquarium?
Thank for any advise!

|7970||What do you guys think about a finnex fugeray 30 inch over a 20 gallon long 12 inch tall low-tech aquarium? Would I get a huge algae farm if I did this?|

I've got a similar setup w/ 2 PowerLEDs over a DoAqua 30cm cube. Was wondering what my substrate surface PAR reading would be. I have a mix of Hydrocotyle and HC that will be covering the foreground of my re-scape. I really appreciate you sharing your findings. Thanks again.

Eheim Aquastyle Power LED (x2)
I just got Hoppy's PAR meter, so I would like to share some readings from my 9 gallon Aquastyle shrimp cube tank (12"x12"x14")
From substrate to the top it's 13" of water column.
I have two lights over the tank, got the extra one on line ($85).
Lights are 1.5" above the water.
at the bottom (13.5" from the light) I got 55 PAR
midway - 85
just bellow the light - 300

|ReluctantHippy||All of those readings were taken with a clear shot to the fixture. I removed as many floaters as possible from all of the tanks and whatever remained was pushed to the very edges. I would be happy to take the readings again though with all of them completely removed. I also have several of the 20w floods I could take measurements on as well if anyone is interested. Same goes with cheap 100w matrixes. Readings on Zoo-Meds new fixtures as well as AI Sols, Vegas, and Radion 1st gens are in the making.|

You've got to remove those floaters or else those readings are falsified.

Wow thank you. I tought that those 10W flood lights would give better results.

Just received one of Hoppy's DIY PAR meters and this is what I documented. All measurements are from the center of the tank unless noted.

ok so the par data is as follows
at 22inch deep 18 inch of water to substraight
standard 55 gal tank so 12 inch wide
at bottem edge of glass 55
bottem middle of tank 78
bottem front of glass 56
middle of tank say 12inch down mid 120 at edges 144 middle
at almost the surface i get a 250 edges and near 300 at middle
and that is 1 light at 100% i dimed it down to 90 and saw about a 3 par drop
this was all tested with a hoppy diy par light he built and calibrated
light is the build my led 48inch 60 led show tank spectrum
