Hey Logan,

Currently running two AI Prime HDs on my IM Nuvo 20. After taking another PAR mapping and making some adjustments, I'm starting to consider new lighting for the tank. Do you have any comparison data between these two lights? I bought a 32" fixture from you on black Friday, and haven't set that tank up yet. Giving some thought to placing the 32" fixture over my Nuvo just to see color spread and get a sense of the two fixtures.

Hi, We don't have a direct comparison as there are so many lights out there, and most of them have their own data. We do have a PAR chart of our own, with the lights at full power, through water in a running reef tank:

Hi Logan - super happy with the Photon V2+ over my Nuvo 20. The additional spread is just what this tank needed to get the far left and right areas of the tank. I'm now thinking I need the 16" unit for my Waterbox 20 build! And I have a 32" unit in the closet waiting for my 80 gallon build.

 

The worst paradigm to hit the hobby is getting your nutrient levels as low as possible?
