What kind of lighting am I looking at if I use one of these 8w leds on a mini-m? according to the PAR graph at 12 inch its about 20-50 PAR. but goes up to 80 PAR at 6 inches. this is for a 12 x 9 area. the mini-M is 14 x 8. so it would be a couple of inches cut off... I want to replace my lighting soon but def want to find something more efficient and dont want to spend the $$ on a ADA light. I want med-high lighting because I will eventually add co2. Whats your experience with this light so far? thanks... btw, tank looks incredible.
