Right height above tank for light

What is the right height to have your light above your tank?

Thanks
Josh

Sorry aiptasia which is a glass anemone you'll want to kill those with straight lime juice in a syringe or joes juice..... The green I would pull off the rock and clean the rock with a new tooth brush in old tank water. I would do the same with the yellow but I'm not sure what that is. It looks like the Rock is fairly new it'll take a little time for it to get color. But the tank needs a good cleaning before you add any livestock I would clean it and do a couple water changes before adding anything
