danmd Don't know if this piece of information is available, just want to give out my first contribution to the community. It is about the PAR values for the Finnex Ray2



According to the Finnex representative, the Finnex Ray2 is better than the Planted Plus for big tanks

Raymond S. "I think" is where I'm at on this one so could anyone say "I know" ?
Is/are the bulbs(white) on a Finnex Ray II the same bulbs as the Planted+
or are the bulbs(white) on the Planted+ the same as on the Fugeray ?
This question has come up many times because the Fugeray is much lower in PAR than a Ray II.

PAR is approx 300 closest to the source measured at 3 depth, per Fluval.

So 300 par at 3 inches, that sinuses like its not good. My tank is 24 inches deep.

Planted + par?

I came across these par values for a 36" Finnex Planted + someone tested with an apogee tester and posted to another site. Can anyone confirm these numbers?

On center. 6" off
2" 235
6" 125
18" 95 32.5
24" 68 25.5

Taekado How does Fluval P36 light stack up, they don't list a PAR.

EvilFish Any PAR idea about AquaticLife EDGE LED?

I saw that thread and that graphic, but it was only for one specific model, the 48". It sure would be nice if Fluval would release those PAR values for their full line...

rahlcepx516 Has anyone used Orphek's lights yet and tested them? I reached out and they have a Planted Tank version of their Atlantik (pendant) now. Their SW setups show high PAR out of water and decent in-tank SW setups. Can't get much info from them on what the FW system puts out and at what ranges.

alienufo anyone have info yet on the 30" Finnex Planted+ fixture? I just got it last week and want to get some new plants, so I need to know what kind I can reasonably grow with this light on a 36g tank.
