The weekend is coming up. Do you think you might have time this weekend to take a few PAR readings? I'm seriously considering one of these.

Thanks!

I just installed this on my CADLights 23G Zen tank that will become a riparium

For now the plants are in pots but the light is on for an 8-hour cycle and I will monitor how they respond.

I just got my planted+ today. First impressions wise... its a bit disappointing compared to the awe of the ray 2. Fewer LEDs. I thought it was the ray 2 with red LED..but its the weaker fugeray with red LED. Also very few red LED. Big mistake for me with two ray 2 already...I should have gotten the monster ray. I thought the monster ray did not put out the >660nm wavelengths but only the near reds.

But build is great as usual and fixture is as expected. Only time will tell if my ~100$ bargain pays off and the plants use the "true" 660nm LED output. Here's hoping for more colour on my pitcher plants. I'll post up some videos soon.
