How high did you mount them above your tank?

My feeling is mount them close with a wide lens and dim them down. Slowly increase and the bottom will get plenty of light.

My tank 2 months old, and I bought the reefbreeders around the same time. No growth yet, but i think it has to do more with my tank not being mature yet. All colors of my zoas, lps looking good.
