Default distance from light to plant

Hello Ron! You definitely got a good thing goin here! Keep up the good work. Now I was wondering if you could entertain my curiosity for a second. I have a 175w MH that I keep about 6-9" above my plants. The temps are 70-75 degrees at the tops. My question is, would such a small distance from light to plant cause them to shy away (practically growing down to the medium)? Besides that, they seem healthy. Thank you Ron.

75 degrees isn't to hot so it can't be from heat. Maybe it's the type of plant. Plants usually elongate if they aren't getting enough light so maybe yours are getting plenty. Try backing off the light some and see how they act.
