How much improvement can I expect (PAR levels) if I put a reflector on a Panorama Pro?
Hi Phillip - The reflector focuses the light below the strip, so you'll see around a 30% increase in PAR.
Cool! What are the PAR readings for say....6 inches, 12 inches and 24 inches from the water surface for the Panorama Pro?
Each model will have a different PAR reading as they each have different wavelengths. In addition, most hobbyists use more then one - so at 12" away the PAR changes dramatically depending upon how many are used. As a reference, 5 modules (3x12K/Blue, 2xBlue) spread every 5 inches produces 200+ PAR at a 24" depth.
