My 180 and PAR

I treat the store's 180 gal reef as my own personal tank. I decided to break out my PAR meter and take some readings. See attached photos.

With 20K you can't expect to much, I should also state these numbers are with the pumps running and surface being agitated, if I was to still the surface, the PAR would increase.
