    Ugh - such a tough question. I've seen some that are so close to the water, I thought they were breaching! And I've seen some 3' off the water. Most of mine are 2 to 3 feet off the water, but I'm dealing w/ 12" tall frag tanks and the light-intense corals are just 6" beneath the surface.

    Maybe I could help this way: what PAR are you hoping to hit at what depth?
