    I have this light:
    https://www.amazon.com/Floodoor-Ligh...MDMZWH5S61AJYE

    According to my Seneye is putting out ~95par @ 6.5in. Seneye thinks it's 10K kelvin, but it's bright pink. Apex says it's pulling 15w.

    I'm hoping to get my refugium put together this week or next. I have to drill out the ATO that came with the reefer and do some re-plumbing. Now where'd I leave that motivation....

    So 6.5 inches below the water it reads 95 par.
    How high above the water?
    Is that straight down?
    How far is the spread of light?

    I with you on the motivation thing. I need to clean out my sump with my dry vac before I really get the refugium going.

    Just thru air and that's the reading dead center. Drops off quite a bit to the sides. At 13" it gets 30par across a pretty wide spread though.

    PUR is reading 88% which is good.

    So how much par/pur/watts do you need for a fuge?

    I guess I should search. I don't want to spend over $50 for a workable solution.

    I guess it depends on much of a reduction in nutrients you need. BRS compared several lights which gives a good idea of results from different amounts of PAR

    You can watch the first video too, but here's the PAR breakdown

    Looks good.

    I ordered a 36w par38 grow light and got it running also. It's been just over a week.
