Just set up my LED lights, quick question.

So I just set up my dimmable Tao 120W this morning and I LOVE it lol. Is there supposed to be a specific height that it hangs from the tank?

Not really. Just high enough so it doesn't get splashed with salt water, and you can still get your hands in the tank.
Are you putting any more rock in there?

I have some live rock in a 10 gal tank and the best way to describe it is infested with tube feather dusters lol. Is it possible to split feather dusters?

There's nothing wrong with feather dusters. you can add that rock. I don't know what you mean about splitting them.

I've got mine about 15"s over the surface, plenty of room to get in tank and great coverage from side to side. tank is 3ft wide. Thanks for the advice X!
