Hey guys so my light is pushing about 250 par at the top of my tank and about 120-140 at the sand bed.. is that a good amount of par for the top?

I’m running a few sticks and they seem to be doing well, but I want to get into some tenuis pieces and wanna know if that’s enough.

For frags it’s fine, if you find that they’re browning, try raising par by 10% and wait a month. Over time, as they grow, they’ll branch up which has higher par values anyway.

So I lowered my light and I’m getting about 300-400 par at the top. That should be adequate amount of light rifht?
I also added another led strip to the tank
