Question

another LED PAR question


I currently have a 50 gallon tank (36x18x19) and looking at getting the Finnex Ray2 Aquarium LED fixture. Does insect screen help reduce the PAR rating?

It depends on how fine the insect screen is, but yes it will block some light. If you want lower light what about the finnex fugeray?

Pm lowe in the finnex sponser forum. I believe there is a new shipment coming in soon and you can ask him if the 36 inch fugeray is included in it.

Good luck!
