Par Meters Rental?

Hey Everyone, heard somewhere that some LFS rent out there par meters but unsure where I heard that from lol. Imd debating on buying one, but than again might be worth just using a par meter as a one time use and mark down levels of par through out the rock work. I don't have a tank set up yet, but trying to get all the supplies and research down before start up.

Never heard of it..but I never really asked either.

Yeah def would be nice to know ahead of time where u stand in par levels.

Takes a lot of guess work out of coral placement. I wouldn't let not having one slow down your build though. Just be mindful of different corals light needs when creating your rockscape and try to create areas conducive to frag placement . Maybe pre-drill holes to accommodate plugs in different levels of the tank.

I bet if u bought one, u could advertise it's usage for a nominal fee on here and people would take you up on it.

I guess there's always the chance of someone running away with it though.
