PAR (Photosynthetic Active Radiation) is the common measurement used to help determine the photosynthetic amount of light needed by corals and plant life for growth and vitality. PAR measures the electromagnetic radiation between 400-‐700nm, which is necessary for photosynthesis for live animals. The JBJ PACIFICA LED PAD is engineered to handle the PAR needs from novice to expert levels of coral needs.
JBJ has designed thier LEDs with both primary and secondary reflectors to cast the most light for wider coverage while maintaining stronger PAR values not only in the center but effectively over a 24” x 24” surface area. The JBJ PACIFICA LED contains both 60 degree optics in the center and 100 degree optics around the perimeter.
An aquarium mounting arm is included along with two mounting brackets: one for traditionally braced aquariums that have a thickness of 18mm-32mm, the other for rimless aquariums with a glass thickness of 18mm or less. A remote ballast with Quick-Disconnect cords is also included.
LED Fixture Dimensions:
Width (Arm Attached): 8.3"
Height: 1.6" (7.6" with mounting arm attached)

I bought the last one
Posted: 5/16/2014 from FLEMING ISLAND, FL UNITED STAT
I own it and love it as not everyone wants to adjust light K's on a smart phone or want a storm effect and such. This unit replaced a (hang ON ) 150 HQI with a 15k bulb . The fit finish and overall look of this fixture is wonderful . The power puts the old 150 HQI to shame. Super happy with this purchase and sad that some blogger that thinks it's SO last year has pretty much ruined it for anyone that may have wanted to try it. Well try lighting a 40 long hex it's hard and well now it's lit so well even I'm amazed !
