    I added myself. Maybe I can nab it after Alex since we are local and I only need it for a day (an hour, really)

    notice the head is positioned on the back side of the bracket for stability

    In doing so it makes the unit much easier to use, read & record your results

    Alex - I am finished. Please send me a PM with a cell number so we can arrange for a pick up

    Hope you all enjoy my little holder
    Thank you for the upgrade/modification Richard.



    Here is a tentative waiting list for the meter:
    Aquaticz
    akpoly
    powderac
    Dgup
    jnm1978

    Please get your emails is ASAP and post on this thread, spots are filling up... Also please add your USER NAME.

    I got mixed up with the 3 Alex's. I was talking about powderac (Alex). Since I had talked to him at the meet and that he wanted it after Richard.

    If it is ok with the people ahead of me, my work is 5 minutes from Richard so I could pickup and have someone nab it same day in the evening.

    Also I'd suggest doing a PAR map of tanks as this will help your understand how the light is being dispersed and where it is intense. This can help you with where you place plants as well.

    Something like this. We could even post our fixtures and tank specs so other people have a good reference of what low-med-high light is with different fixtures and setups.

    In this made up example the right side of the tank for some reason (Floats, mid ground reflecting, rocks, etc. is slightly less intense. In addition it may not be a good idea to extend some foreground plants all the way to the corners of the tank. Alternatively you may want more light in front for a demanding foreground plant (Tall stem plants in the back grow taller and get more light as they grow). Another option would to get a higher powered light and raise that higher above the tank so you get more even distribution over area.

    Positions that were not measured and be guessed from the surrounding PAR values.

    Dan can have it before me. I will change the list above to reflect my new place in line. I was planning planning on having a mini meet at my place this summer and this would be a good activity.

    I just messaged the other Alex "akpoly" to see if those that live close could jump the line with the condition that we would have it to him by this weekend, otherwise I will snag it from him once he is done. IF he is okay with that, Dan, I don't mind if you jump ahead of me to use it as I have several tanks I am going to be using it on and will need more than just an hour or w/e.

    I live 5 minutes from Aquaticz. So it's not traveling far after Richard. I literally just rescaped my tank last night and I'd like to find out before I dump plants and water in it. And I work in Santa Monica so it would be even closer to those who live in SM.

    Ok, I have the PAR meter and I'm done with it. I'll be posting results and picture this weekend. Very pleased with my results.

    Alex (powderac) feel free to pick it up when you can.

    @Richard (POTUS) - I sent the required email...however, you guys can take your time as I won't need the PAR meter for another 4-6 weeks (probably mid-late April) because I am working out the order details to my lighting system
