Hanging lights

So I am hanging my Chinese LED boxes over my 92g corner reef tank. It works out that the face of the light is 11" above the water. Is this too high?? The tank is 25" tall. Thanks in advance

I don't think my colors are true to life in my pictures. they always appear a bit bluer than reality, unless I turn down the blues for the pic, but then, I'm defeating the purpose...
The corals look wonderful though. As good as any lighting source I've seen if not better.
You can keep them 10" or so. Just enough so they are away from the water enough to not be a danger. What are the optics you have in your fixtures? Mine are the 120
(it just looks like a little bubble), and It's 30" to the sand bed.
