If your keeping corals then you have to remember the deeper the tank the less the lights will penetrate ! What lighting do you have ?

I'm still on t8 bulb (wrong I know) I'm about to build a new custom tank in the coming week, the reason is cos I'm limited to space so I can only go taller, I've got a devils finger and a couple of zoas

Taller can work as long as the lights are strong enough. Aquarays are great. If you go on their website there is a chart that explains exsactly what you need for different setups.
