Tank size: 130*60*67 cm
Lighting system:
1) 8*54w (120cm) ATI T5 bulbs (6 blue plus + 2 coral plus).
2) Three Kessil A360x
Both, hanging 20cm above water surface.

On water surface, should I expect PAR above 350?
On tank bottom, should I expect PAR above 200?

With 8x54w, i wouldnt be worried about par for anything.....
I agree.
But the question is, what would be the PAR level with the addition of 3 Kessil A360x, for such tank size.

The main goal is to be able to grow SPS in every location ("bottom like").

Why not get a par meter and find out instead of doing guesswork?

Actually, it is not a guesswork at all.
As a virtual community, I am pretty sure that some members use T5 and Kessil A360x combination and might give some information.
