These PAR measurements were taken in "open air". Based on my experience, they will differ little when measured with water in the tank. The fact that these lights use surface mounted emitters without any optics might provide different results through water - I'll remeasure once the tank is wet.

More photos in my 12G Long build thread.
Any update with water or planted? Im looking at getting one of these for the same tank. Please let us know.
