Use a lux meter or the lux meter app to take a measurement from the distance your light is to the substrate. Take the result and divide by 80 to get a rough estimate of par/ppfd. If this is a co2 injected tank keep the light somewhere between 50 to 100 unless you are trying to make this hard on yourself. If this is not a co2 injected tank keep the light somewhere between 15 to 30.

Can you please share the app you use?
Thanks!!
