Lighting height

I have two 120 watt dimable taotronics and I'm about to hang them. How high off the water should I mount them?

There not waterproof so they should be at least 12 in. above the water. I'd put them alittle higher, that will also give you easier access to your tank for maintenance and prevent them from getting wet.
