Has anyone tested the par on the new or3 blue plus bars alone. Looking to get 2 150cm blue plus for some pop and night view. Just was wondering how much extra par I will get per light, don’t think it will be a ton was just wondering.

Measurements taken using Apogee 510.

My tank is a few inches short than yours, but same L&W. Been looking at these for a while and would be nice to have more pop in the evening as well as extra pop to my regular lights. How are you running yours like power and timing whiles.

Running 6 Radion G4 pros front to back w/a modified AB+ schedule from 10AM to 10PM. The 2 OR3 Blue+ run from 9AM to 11PM. Thinking of adding 2 more OR3s.

You must have some high par reading especially if you add them 2 more bars but I bet it’s nice, if you could/ willing to pm a picture or so of the display tank that would be cool

Have not formally tested, but a single 3 foot OR3 blue bar added approxiamately 100 PAR to my tank about 10 inches below water level. OR3 is about 14 inches above water level.
