The units came out about 4 feet, 3 inches. We varied the pours so they ranged from 4 feet to 4 Feet, 3 inches so that we could use the taller units when the sea floor dipped or the shorter units when it rose so the tops of the Reef Balls would always be at the same depth making for a smooth looking reef top.
