Not much surprisingly. I suspect most of the PAR data you are seeing was measured with air. Water introduces variables that would affect the measurement. However, you'll actually get slightly higher...

Welcome back!

So the WPG rule does not apply at all to LEDs and generally does not work well for T5HO either.

I'd recommend black acrylic so you don't have to paint it. Wouldn't you have issues cleaning the paint too?

Well done.

I'll be following along. I've been going back and forth on discus for awhile. Can never decide if they are worth it in a planted tank.
