They are mounted at 14" above the water.
Ok you have 2 AI whites, very strong. I'm sure you've tried this but I'll ask anyway and sorry again if your answering the same questions over and over again.
Have you tried whites at 10% and your blues 20%?
Maybe give that a try for a week or two? See how the corals are reacting, I'm sure you know all this already, keep a close on them if you see signs of them needing more light then just turn them up by 2% increments.
14" is plenty of height. My AI SOL BLUE sits about 5" from the water surface but I believe the bio cube stock splash guard keeps some light out, especially when it get condensation. My lights are at peak, W30/B50/RB/70
What about feeding? Also what are the corals doing exactly? Bleaching, closing up? Do they look like the light may be too much? Some of my corals when I first got the light closed up tight for awhile so I switched to the acclimation setting.
I hope we can figure this out so we can have your tank back on track and thrive.
