Hey everyone,

I got a coralife aqua light pro for free and replaced the 2 MH bulbs with new Phoenix Electric Company Metal Halide HQI 14000K DE Bulb for Aquarium, 150-watt for a frag tank. The tank is a standard 110g thats 28" tall. Does anyone know how high I should mount it above the tank and how high I should put my frag rack for 200-300 par? any help is appreciated as Im on a budget and really don't want to rent a par meter if I don't have to, at least to get it set up. Thank you!

Do you have a Reef Club in your area? Someone around you might loan you one.
