I know that LEDs can only go through water to a certain depth based on wattage and color. Would it be best to lower a weaker light to the after for deeper light penetration? Does it matter the height position above the tank?

yes, the height of the light above the water level does effect the penetration
 

Do you reef more, less or the same on the weekends?
