Mine are in the middle due to rock layout @MERKEY how about you?
Start them on the bottom and then move into place. They will really go anywhere as long as flow is good and not slamming them.

My par ranges from 150-325 where I have my torches. But they really will do ok with anything above around 75. Under that and some bleaching may occur.

Higher par will pull more color with higher nutrients. Po4 .1-.15 and n03 20-40 is where I've seen the best color and tenticle structure.

The most recent ones that I got from you are teal centered and the outside appears to be turning a similar color as these. Mine are in pretty high light.
