A bit of a long shot I know. Since I'm switching over to plants that require lower lighting I'm hoping someone happens to have a spare:
36" Finnex Planted + 24/7 fixture I can borrow to test for PAR and color on my 50 gal tank.

Or at least let me know if you've measured PAR at 16" depth.

Let me know. Thanks!

Thanks!

Any idea if there is difference between the standard + and the + 24/7?

The colors are different, planted+ uses 660nm red LEDs so it is difficult to measure with a regular PAR meter. I think for the 24/7 they use regular LEDS, including red, blue, green. In terms of strength, I'm not too sure if it's a big difference.

I run the Finnex 24/7 on my 37 Tall which is like 18" I believe and it is great IMO on a 16" it should be perfectly fine also my Finnex is 30"
