Ok so i was bored and decided to get some dry par reading from my Kessil H160 Flora and A160 Tuna Sun combo on my fuge. Fuge dimensions 21L X 12W X 20H. I decided to go with this combo as it will give me the widest spectrum for any macro algae or whatever i decide to put in there. I took readings at 100% and 50%.... i peaked at 340 par at the bottom at 100% and 180 par at 50%! I used apogee instruments mq-510 for the par readings

Did planet also do the metal stand? Did you go with low iron glass?
Yup and Yup.... They are making magnetic cabinet doors for it which is why is its delayed. It will look like a wooden stand but all of the doors will pop off if i need to work on it...etc.
