sorry to ask but the search function is not working for me.

I have two 250W, 10,000K fixtures above a 24in deep 180gal display that I want to keep SPS. I continue to struggle with how high off the water level should I set the MH. any suggestions? I do not have access to a PAR meter....

thank you!

It depends on what reflector is used. Generally speaking, use 8" to 12" as a guide. For 400w fixtures, 12" to 15".

I keep mine at about 8" above the water.
