I'd like to start a discussion based on a few things I've been reading lately regarding optimum daily light integral, PAR and photosaturation in our reef tanks and with the advent of this new lighting forum.
For those of you with PAR meters and the ability to continually monitor PAR via an...

I was wondering what are ideal Par values/numbers at top, mid & bottom for a mixed reef to include softies, LPS & SPS.
All this Par, light intensity & color talk is confusing to me. :) I would like advice & recommendations on a 12 hr lighting schedule from dusk...
Today on BRStv Investigates, we continue our series on optimal lighting for SPS corals with a complete look at the Giesemann Spectra T5/MH Hybrid Fixture! Being proven lighting options for healthy and colorful SPS corals, the T5/MH combo is sure to impress with its performance in this...
I've never had luck with Red Planet frags, but I traded some hammer and acro corals for a large piece of Red Planet and am trying again. I figure a larger colony will have a better chance of survival.

I did my research and found that with the placement in my tank from the surface and the PAR readings of my light (Current USA orbit marine), the frogspawn would receive anywhere from 80-100 PAR. Is there anyone who has tried this (or any other euphyllia corals) with the same light setup?
what are some cool low light corals? Mostly under 100 PAR as my lighting is low. I already have 3 different zoas , 1 mushroom, and 1 Pom Pom Xenia. Is there any other corals you guys like that fit in my PAR range?
So I just got my par meter and have a few questions!

Frag tanks 48" x 24" x 8" running an 8 bulb t5HO setup
