The $40 spent on this rental might be the best $40 I have spent on my tank in a long time. Some of my frags (particularly SPS) were surviving but not really thriving, so I decided to rent this meter and check out my lighting. The unit was clean, well packaged and very easy to use. I quickly realized my PAR levels were roughly 100 points lower than what i expected in much of the tank. After increasing the intensity and lowering the height of my lights a few inches, I was able to easily get my PAR levels in the range where i wanted them. My corals look happier now. I just wish I'd done it sooner.
This unit is amazing and is really a must have if you want to get your new tank setup properly so you know where to place corals at and not bleach them out!
It arrived really quick and was packaged beautifully, a nice card included with instructions and return shipping was a breeze. If you don't rent this out when setting up your lights your missing out
If you don't rent this you're failing!
So glad you can rent this! Worked great and was able to tune my lights to minimize low spots that looked brighter than they really were. Definitely will be renting this again for the next tank!
