Rental: Apogee MQ-510 Par Meter: Full-Spectrum Underwater Quantum Meter + Wand

11 reviews

Provides research-grade underwater measurements under all light sources, including LEDs with Apogee's full-spectrum underwater quantum meter. 

The MQ-510 quantum meter is designed for underwater PAR measurements and already applies the sensor's immersion effect correction factor to the meter readings through firmware.

The meter provides excellent measurements under all light sources, including LEDs. The meter consists of a waterproof quantum sensor attached via water-proof cable to a handheld meter. The waterproof sensor incorporates a blue-enhanced silicon photodiode and custom optical filters with a rugged, anodized aluminum body with acrylic diffuser. The underwater quantum sensor is typically used in saltwater aquariums where corals are grown. Note: The handheld meter is not waterproof, only the sensor and cable are waterproof.

Need a custom recommendation?

We process orders Monday through Wednesday. In addition orders are shipped via FedEx though various services; FedEx Overnight, Fedex 2 Day Shipping, and Fedex Home Delivery or Ground for commercial addresses.

Our bottles are FDA approved for food contact, strong, lightweight, and completely recyclable. Rest assured keeping your reef adequately fed is environmentally friendly.

If you're not ready to use your tisbe or apo copepods once you receive them you can store them by removing the cap and storing them at room temperature out of direct sunlight.

For Rotifers, and Tig pods remove the cap and store them in the fridge until ready.

Tisbe copepods reproduce extremely well in a reef tank. Keep in mind that the ability to establish a population depends on reproduction exceeding predation. Therefore if you have a lot of predation based on your reef tank stock, it's important to introduce an adequate amount.

The best time to introduce copepods is once the tank inhabitants are not very active. This would be once the lights are off after they have been fed heavily. They can be introduce into the display, back chamber of an all in one, or in a refugium.

No problem, just here over here and reach out to us and we'll get back to you with the best approach to keeping your reef thriving.

Make sure to give us enough information about your tank.

    Fast delivery & Great PAR Meter!

    This rental program is great! This PAR meter is top of the line and very easy to use. It helped me collect the data I needed to place my corals in the most optimum locations. (And Josh is super knowledgeable and nice!)

    Apogee MQ-510 Par Meter rental

    Very easy transaction. I received the Apogee PAR meter in a few days, used it to find the PAR values in several places of my aquarium, put it back in the box it arrived in, applied the shipping ticket supplied, and dropped it off at the nearest shipper. The deposit I paid was back in my PayPal account a couple days after they received it. The shipping cost comes right out of the deposit.
