Those ATI must be really good, that quite a distance from the light to the substrate. What kind of PAR do you get and is that HC Cuba on the ground?
The light sits 15" above the tank, and about 29 inches to the substrate, with the light at 50% on all 6 light banks, i get 70 par at the substrate. Once things are more established, depending on how often im trimming, i will bump this up.

What size fixture? i have the par data from mine, 6x36 if your interested in the numbers.
Thanks and I appreciate the help but I have a par meter. :thumbsup:

I am running the 24 x 4 on a 60P. I'm only running all the bulbs on 29% for 8 hours which equates to 40par at substrate.

What is your lighting schedule like with the ATI?
