Some par readings from a par38 and my MH


Recommended Posts

So I was playing around with my par meter and did some testing....


The first test was with the little par38 bulb I have on my refugium.



This was at 19'' par was 178





This was at 11'' par was 416







Then I tested my metal halides, they are 250 watt radiums with lumen bright mini reflectors.


6" from reflector 1645

12'' from reflector 1236

5'' under water at the first coral 724

9'' under water 610 under water

15'' under water 524

1'' off sand bed 450


The par is very good on the sand bed.
