Seedlings stretching too much, falling over

How’s it going everyone at Rollitup? This is my first post and I’m hoping you guys might be able to give me a couple tips.

I’m a medical grower with 10 patients under my belt and I’m working on my first grow op.

At the moment I have about 50 seedlings in Rockwool on their way, I’m using clonex nutrients mixed with water of aprox 6 PH. I am using a 600W Metal Hallide light for seedling growth.

The seeds have been growing for about a week or so now and some of them are stretching like CRAZY! to the point of 1/3 of all my plants have fallen and are no longer growing upwards.

My light is about 3 feet away from the plants,, is that too far or too close? Or is there some other reason for this to be happening?

I am using paperclips ATM to support the plants but i just want them to stop stretching and start strengthening their stems.

Any help would be highly appreciated, thanks!
