    I would be curious how you like the diffusers. I did not realize they made them.

    Thank - I spent a lot of time planning it and $ getting it built. I have been very happy with it. My only regret is the ARID30 reactor

    So I am very disappointed with my initial finding. Unfortunately I did not do an exact head to head comparison. Initial measurements were taken with the lights set to 95% intensity and 14K. Post measurements were taken at 92% and 20K. I plan on taking new measurements at the same settings.

    Also, the left fixture was swapped out between measurements. I did not like how the surface measurement was about 1/2 the PAR of the other two.

    That's quite significant! I'm curious to see your direct comparison with the values/spectrum the same.

    Out of curiosity, which par meter are you using?

    Yeah those differences are huge. However, considering that it wasn't comparing apples to apples, those results don't mean much. Gotta keep the control the same.

    I took new PAR measurements and it looks like on average the values are 10% lower with the diffusers.
