Height will depend on heat, height of tank, type of corals and where they are placed. It is a very hard question to answer. A good rule is about 12 inches above water.

I don't have a pen.

I don't agree with 12in from the water. i personally use 4in and i know many that do the same and keep great tanks.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
