As the total says got my diffusers on my tank love the new look it gives the tank
Looking very good. I imagine that it helps with light pollution into the room a bit too, the G4 lenses tended to shine into the eyes before the diffusers.
Vey vey nice!
So what visual differences have you noticed?
Yes it helps to cut down on light spill in the room
the light is more diffused and less disco effect had a small drop ing par to but bumped that back up less shading now to
Nice! Looks like we have the same tank (reefer 250?) with the same number of xr15s! Glad you like them
yes a reefer 250 maybe not for long tho
Much better light spread but I feel like it has more light spill similar to an edge to edge T5 fixture. Still loving them though!
Wow very cool. I was a bit skeptical at first but your before and after pictures really show the difference!!
Has any diffuser users measured their PAR numbers before and after?
I have had to increase my intensity from 75% up to 100% to keep my clam happy. I suspect that the slight decrease in PAR values reported are more then they say.
Wow, spectacular Reef tank !!
What radion version?
At 100% Gen 4
What's your mounting height lens to water?
Do you have some par readings for us?
How many lights over what width?
Fixture without diffuser gap to water column is 8.25"
I do not have any PAR readings , hence my asking on this thread. I base the decreased PAR levels from how my Clam looked after 4 weeks with the diffusers and no adjustment to intensity levels and also because Ecotech states that there is a 25% decrease. (I could have sworn that they initially said 15%~20% but just checked their website and now it says 25%)
Three XR15 G4 units on a 36"x24"x18" aquarium.
Wanted to see if any other diffuser users had to ramp their fixtures up that much due to the diffusers.
