What Is My Light Level?

Nada Mucho

I have a 30 gallon planted tank and I'd like to know if the lighting I'm using would be considered medium or high. Currently I'm running 4 of the Aquaray GroBEAM 600 Ultima LED lights. They are short so I have two (end to end) on the back part of my versa-top and two on the front.

Here are the specs from their website for one light bar:

LEDs: 5x Cree XB-D Natural Daylight
Beam Angle: 120°
Correlated Colour Temp: 6500 K
PAR at 400mm in air: 61 µEinsteins/sec/m²
Illuminance at 400mm in air: 2650 lux
Total Luminous Flux: 1029 lumens
Total Power Consumption (inc.PSU): 12W at 700mA
Efficacy: 86 lm/W

My first tank and I'm new to light so I'm still trying to guage my setup. Any insight or opinions would be most welcome. Thank you!

Dear Nada Mucho,

Your lighting level is medium. It falls on the higher end of the medium lighting. Here are my favourite links :
