    I have a feeling you've a great amount of par, but you should take a look to make sure

    Here's some LED tests (note that the maximum par with 130 watts of led is 550.

    Thanks very much - I'll take a look

    I've actually just sold the two SOL whites I had hanging around, so there's some spare cash for lighting burning a hole in my pocket

    The tank is 8' by 2' by 2', and there's only 3 of the AI blues suspended about 12" off the top of the water surface, arranged lengthwise (so the longer parts of the Sols are parallel to the longer side of the tank) down the tank.
