I raised the light because it was actually too much light and it was causing algae on the carpet and other areas in the tank. I still do get some algae growing on the plants closest to the light.
Check out that thread and scroll down to the charts and you can learn some stuff about par and which lights are high light at what distance.

Hi I just saw your journal for the 20L. It looks awesome, I hope my tank can look like that some day. Question for you if you don't mind. So you just have a finnex Ray2 4 inches above the top of the tank and that is enough to grow carpeting plants? Do you think the ray 2 gives you at least medium/medium high light?
I recently got a 20L also and right now I just have 3 CFL clamp-on work lights on top of the tank but the light is pretty un-even so I was thinking of upgrading to LED. The Ray2 seems like a good choice but I'm trying to aim for medium high/high light so wanted to see what your thoughts on the Ray2 over a 20L tank. Thanks

|theericafish||Did a major trim today. Going for a dutch looking nature aquarium. Also considering adding a monster ray to my ray 2 for added color and a bit of par. Running co2 very conservative at the moment, plants seem fine and algae is at bay.|

Rams started breeding after a slight top off. They began by cleaning off a rock(ryuoh stone) and when I got home from work the female was laying eggs ontop of it in a really good viewing area for me.
I made a video, pretty neat only had them for a few days. The male has been guarding the eggs and what looks to be like he is fanning them.

|theericafish||Added new video. Rams are getting more and more colorful, hoping they breed.|

20g Long with CO2 progress
Along with the addition of the co2, we introduced some livestock: white cloud minnows, a nerite snail, amano shrimps, and some more otos. We also moved our neon tetras and one remaining amano shrimp from our 10g to this tank. It's a nice community we have now.
We also added some new plants: frog bit, rotala vietnam, and hydrocotyle verticillata (we have been calling it the "pogo" plant).
The scape was also updated with ryuoh stones.
View from below of the frog bit.
Our ludwigia, rotala, hairgrass etc... forest.
Pogos to the right, plus ryuoh stones.

Added some Indian almond leaf to the tank in hopes of providing anti-fungal and bacterial qualities and hopefully get the ph down slightly. The crushed coral brings my 7.2 tap to 7.5 but gives me the gh that keeps my cherry shrimp happy.
Anyway, hoping I find some sort of medium using somewhat natural methods.
Tetras are doing fine in the higher ph but I'd like to see them a bit happier.
