  • PAR for Finnex Planted 24/7 on 24/7 cycle

    I made the following calculations based on the data provided in this review: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/10...ll-review.html


    I found this information helpful as it was the only source that provided PAR readings in water through the 24/7 cycle. All measurements are taken IN WATER {at a 1" offset}. I reviewed a number of sites regarding the effect of a glass lid on PAR and based on my findings I estimated a 13% reduction in PAR through dusty, glass with condensation.
