Hey guys! My new tank is coming next week its a Reefcasa Flat 9 and I plan on starting it up next week! As such I do not have a par meter. I'm hoping my LFS has one I can rent. but for right now I am wondering how high It should be until I can get a meter. The tank itself is 7 Inches high. I do understand it doesn't matter as much during the cycle .. but just want to see what everyone else thinks.

I didn't know they had that one their website... Mmm so it looks like a good start would be 8 inches.

I think 6-8” should be fine, just depends on how much you’re trying to cover and how much light spill you have? But I would start around 8” and move the light until you’re happy.
