How high is too high?

I've been reading many threads on Zoa propagation and for the most part, it seems that most ppl say that the higher you place the Zoas the faster they grow.

 

I have a biocube 29, stock lighting. How high should I put the Zoas if I want to achieve fastest growth given the setup? it seems that I can build a rack right below the water line. would this cause any issues? the light would be very close, probably only 3-4 inches from the corals.

No, that won't cause issues with the stock lighting. When I get my prop tank up, the light is going to be ~8" above the water, with zoas and micros barely a few inches under the water line.

 

It'll be fine.

one problem with the rack is that there is less light underneath the rack. positioning the rack will be critical. also add flow to your good growth equation.

When the floor is spinning!

 

Oh, you mean zoos. I'd say you can't have em too high as long as you slowly acclimate them to the new lighting.

 

Watch em, and if they start to discolor move em down a bit.

 

There is no set rule...just patience and trial and error
