Today on BRStv, we have a brand new episode for our series, BRStv Investigates. In this series we explore popular reefing theories, products, methods, and what the manuals are missing, with a focus on putting them to the test!

This week we are taking a dive into PAR testing lights and if that should be conducted in air or water and how water can impact the readings. PAR values will be much more stable in air but since our aquariums do have water a majority of light output testing should be conducted in a tank with water. There are a few different factors like reflection, refraction, and water clarity that can change how light is emitted around a reef tank.

So follow along as we answer today's question, provide some helpful insight, and help make reefing just bit more fun and easy for you and your tank.

Be sure to watch and keep an eye out for future episodes as we test spread, PAR, coverage, efficiency and more!
