Much as a PAR meter sounds fun, I will point out that it would literally use up 100% of our club funds... which means no moolah left over to cover door prizes, NEC dues, and miscellaneous expenses. If we can find a used one for sale I wouldn't be opposed, though.

Is this a legit meter?

We'll have to have a talk about it at our next meeting.

Other ideas are welcome, a PAR meter is just one possibility.

What about a SP600 Spectrophotometer? It can analyze 100+ chemicals in your tap water with a high degree of accuracy. Might be more useful than a PAR meter since we can really get to the heart of plant issues.

We could check and compare water samples during meetings with this beauty, really figure things out and compare our tanks with accuracy.

Info about it:

I suppose ideally we'd need both a PAR meter and a spectrophotometer. Maybe two things we can add to the future purchase list?
