I have had the radion since it was released many years ago.  I was wondering if anyone has noticed diminishing PAR readings from LED lights.  I have been running them at 100% for about 5 years.  I replaced my refugium light with an LED and Coraline Algea is growing everwhere, but the display tank.  I was just curious if this could be a result of my par.  Might be time to throw in the towel and get a new Gen 4??

Leds do lose par over time. Usually its suggested to run them below 70% to keep it at a minimum.

Good to know,  I think I am going to be purchasing a new Radion after doing a little comparison anyways.

Thanks
