Anybody using the Seneye Monitor for testing PAR in their tank? Trying to decide if worth buying or should just pull trigger and get an Apogee. I am using LED to light my tank.

Received the meter today and tried testing my LEDs. WOW, had no idea of the PAR I am getting with my fixture. At present settings, I have a PAR of ~250 at sand bed directly under the fixture and a max of 700 at water surface. The majority of the corals are in the 350-500 range.

I have one and while I wouldn't really trust the exact number it has been useful to see numbers to track and compare when switching out lighting.

Understood. I will be changing over to another brand of LEDs so wanted a way to gauge what values to start at to acclimate tank to new lights. Looking at doing about 65% of current setting as per manufacturer's recommendation.
