    You have to be a paid member for at least 6 months.

    Also, going forward, everyone will need to sign and return a PAR meter form before receiving.

    Hello,
    Please add me to the list. I would love to finally definitely know the PAR levels in my tanks.
    Thanks!

    Update. I have sent a 2nd email to all those who responded with the PAR meter agreement. Please return the agreement so that we can get the PAR meter moving again.

    Current List

    @elishapep and @flipb18b - can you please PM me with your full name, address, phone number, and email so that I can verify your ctars membership? Please and thank you :)


    I am also posting the agreement here. You can print it, sign, scan, and send back to me. OR I can email you a copy to electronically sign.

    The agreement is good until the end of 2018.

    Thank you and Stay Reefy!

    Hi Nicole,
    I couldn't find any email from you but I filled out the form you posted and emailed it to the your address as listed on the CTARS website. I'm optimistic it'll make it this far down the list before the year is out.
    Thanks so much for keeping this thread active and for you and anyone else keeping this PAR meter loaner program alive. It's an awesome club perk and I do not envy you having to respond to folks like me begging to borrow it. Speaking of folks like me begging to borrow it, looks like poor Skydvr has been on the list a full year and has been next up since last Aug. Any word on when Skydvr will get a chance to use it?

    Skydvr got moved around and other people used it in the interim. He's not on r2r as much. I want to get this moving, so you should see it sooner than expected.

    I shipped the meter back and it's in the hands of Nicole. Thank you all again for organizing. I'd like to borrow it again when I'm due to see how some changes worked out on my lighting.

    Hi Nicole,
    Saw JMetaxas returned the meter last month. Am I still next up on the list? If so what should I be doing to acquire it?
    Thanks

    FYI,
    If you want to mount the PAR meter to something to help take consistent readings, it accepts a #10-32 thread stainless steel machine screw. I would have passed along the screw I had but it was extra long (I rigged up a plastic spacer) and I didn't want anyone to try and fully tighten it. Also, a wavy surface makes the reading jumpy. I turned off my power heads to flatten out the surface for nice stable numbers. The PAR meter was hugely helpful in understanding my tank lighting for SPS placement.
