32 LED biocube PAR readings

A few months ago a came across a post where someone had measured the PAR readings throughout a 32g biocube with the stock LED lights. I had snapped a picture of it but my phone crapped out on me and I don't have it anymore. Was seeing if anyone may have something similar or could direct me to the post. Or if anyone else has measured the PAR readings what were your results?! Thanks!

Is this what you are looking for?

I'm glad I bookmark anything moderately interesting

Good info there but not quite what I was looking for. The post I remember seeing was a picture of a biocube and they had sticky notes on the front glass showing the PAR measurements in each corner of the tank as well as the top mid, mid, and bottom mid of tank.

Might have been this thread (or the link at the bottom), but it looks like pics are dead, even if it was this thread/person.

Here's a useful discussion of biocube lighting and PAR
