16" Stingray PAR?

I'm trying to find the PAR ratings for a 16" Stingray. All I can find is for the longer Stingrays or the clip ons. Does anyone know what the PAR is for a 16" sit-on-tank Stingray?

You could put some cheap fish in with them to test before you commit to the fish you really want. Just make sure the fish you get aren't themselves diseased.

I haven't had heaters in my tanks for several years. Temps probably vary from 65-78. I haven't noticed any change in plant growth. I say try whatever strikes your fancy and see if it grows.
