Thanks! Yeah I figured the Giesemann would pump out a tad less par but was curious as to your updated numbers. I’ll get it up and running and cross that bridge when I get to it.Thanks. Post 13 was the last time I did a full PAR map, but generally speaking 250-300. My tank is only 22" high with 20" water depth. It's also my understanding that Giesemann produce a bit less PAR. So with an 8 bulb, you might get a little less on the bottom. As far as flow, my tank is only 40" long so I have no middle flow issues. If my tank was 48", I'd probably add one more in the middle, or do one on either end and one in the middle. At your length, I'd seriously consider at least one on each end rather than all on the back wall.
What camera do you use for pictures?
How long have you had the acid trip and from what size?
That's a good question. I keep pretty good records of my coral purchases, but I can't find that one... The oldest picture I can find is from when I placed it, 04/19/2019:
I think this might be my first close up shot from 06/02/2019:
