about 5" or so away from the water, but the supplied hanging hardware is long. If you don't modify it, you are going to need to construct something that sits about a foot and a half above the tank.

I was gonna build a frame out of 1"x6" boards 6" vertical and set them on the frame. Do you not recommend setting them on the frame and second question should I leave airspace holes in the rear of the frame.

Harvesting live rock from reefs shouldn't be aloud IMO
So if you do it quietly it's ok?😊

That's fine how you have them, and I guess when you turned them on you got your answer about ventilation too.
I wouldn't run the lights at all during the cycle. All that will do is fuel nuisance algae.

Looks like tank is really coming along. Tank pics look nice. I agree with Doug about not running lights during cycle.
