    PAR Value Database

    Since we once again have a PAR meter available for rent for Club Members I thought it would be time to keep a database of PAR values for the various lights on the market.
    Everyone that checks out the PAR meter and tests their lighting, PLEASE post your results here such as; PAR value at the substrate and distance from the light, PAR values at various points of the tanks, position the light is in (front/middle/back of tank), number of lights being used, brand and model of light being tested.
    Thank you so much everyone, hopefully we can build a strong database that members can reference back to.

    Hey, I'd like to share my aquarium PAR database website if that's okay. Let me know if it's not and I'll remove it

    https://aquariumpardata.com/

    There are affiliate links in here but don't feel obligated to use them. Just wanted to share the PAR knowledge of different lights I've personally measured using seneye PAR meter

    If anyone can contribute their data, I can work on adding it to the website

    That looks very handy! Do you have plans to add more lights?

    Financially, it's not viable for me to buy lights to test. But if someone wants to get their light fixture tested, feel free to PM me. You'll need to drop it off/pick up it up in Garden Grove (92844) once I finish testing it.

    Hi... at first I was running my BML at 100% from 6am to 7pm, yet began to get green growth. I then we on a multi day get-away and decreased the photograph time frame to just 3 hours in the first part of the day and 3 PM. The plants developed fine and the green growth significantly diminished. After that I diminished my maximum light to half (morning 10% until 9am, at that point half until 5pm, and afterward 10% once more). Plants develop well, green growth is as yet existent, yet next to no (primarily noticeable on the glass and a few rocks).
