How much PAR does the Easy Plant LED light put out?
When it comes to planted aquarium lights, many people want to know the PAR rating. PAR stands for "photosynthetic active radiation" and basically measures how bright a plant light is. However, many things can effect the PAR rating of a light — such as the distance from the light, height of the tank, interference from the aquarium lid, and placement of the plants. This video discusses the PAR readings for the Aquarium Co-Op Easy Plant LED that we measured on different aquariums:
The amount of lumens emitted by the Easy Plant LED varies by the model. They range from 1,100 lumens in our 12” model to 4,500 lumens in our 48” model. See the product page for a chart that displays all of the technical information.
