Thanks, sounds like saving for two lights might be the best best, then I can dim it if need be.

48 inch dual 3 watt is 65 par at 17"? or the quad?

getting confused, there was a thread about a 30 inch 3 watt dual that is 130 par at 23 inch, the 48 is less? or am i reading it wrong.

All readings are using a DIY PAR meter
so take each for what it's worth.
I just assume the in tank measurements are more err.. relevent:


this is 2 2 row 3W beamsworks side by side.

From Center
Height 0" / 6" / 12"
0" 450 / na / na
12" 220 / 140 / 6
18" 140 / 108 / 12
24" 108 / 100 / 28
30" 83 / 90 / 45
36" 70 / 75 / 49

This is a "native" 4 row fixture.. numbers correspond relatively..1`30 at 17 140 at 18 close enough..
A SINGLE 2 row fixture (not a quad) will be, roughly 1/2 that.

Well they do have different types of lenses.. I "believe" the snakeyes are more efficient and a bit narrower output..
don't quote me on that. All circumstantial..

Most cost effective place to buy a Beamworks Quad 3W 6500k for my 29 gallon. Looking to buy the 36" my tank to avoid the dark spots on the side of the tank and to be able to grow carpet plants like HC.

for a 29 gallon 36 inch long? i think the dual will work if you have the tank that is 12 inch wide by 16 height.

Sooo would 1 48" quad 3w or 2 dual 3w be better to get the best coverage /highest lighting in my 75g?
Im thinking the 2x dual as they can be spaced out more than the single fixture?

you have to consider the height of your substrate too. like 2.5 - 3 inches so you are down to like 15. think about it. should have enough par
