How high do I want my lighting from my tank? Its 5 inches from the tank now and I can't keep the temp below 80. I have to unplug my heater during the day to keep it at 80. Should I move it up a few more inches? I have 150w and 2 64w tubes.

Sounds like a heater malfunction. Seriously it's clear as day. If you have it set to come on at anything below 76F and to shut off at 79 but it's coming on at 80 and staying on the warmer it gets, there is a problem right? Unplug it. I never use one with the reef.
set the heater at the desired temperature u want it, it will only kick in if it goes below ur set suitable temperature. i have question on lighting aswell, is there a differance between metal halide and just halide lights? or do u guys in american just call them metal halides cause i can get halide lights dirt cheap through my work + fitting just want to know if they were the same...

Thats why I put the heater back in the sump for now. Its not the fish that mind its the corals that care.
