Hello!

I’m seeking for some help regarding PAR values for gorgonians.
I’ve been measuring the PAR in my tank with the Photone app and a diffuser.

I have 2 AI PRIME set at maximum height on the rigid bracket and are using the Stuart Bertram schedule at 100%

These are the PAR readings

If you’re wondering why some measurements are higher than others looking at the depth, it’s because the corals are at a different horizontal distance from the light source :)

Do you think the PAR would be fine or should I lower the lights a bit?

I’d like to have only gorgonians, a few soft corals and (some macro algae in the near future).

Thank for any help. I hope the question won’t sound too stupid…
