Lighting for ricordea

How much lighting for my ricordea? I have 4 x 65 pc, he seems to do better lower in the tank than at the top. Is this right?

what size tank do you have? how deep is you tank?

my experience with ricordias are that they do fine in most lighting. i've never had problems with to much light with them.
