move to a cooler location after germination?

I started some impatiens in trays with domes over them, the room is a steady 71-72 degrees, I have a florecent grow light about 6" above the trays. I planted them 5 days ago. 95% of them have germinated. Can they be moved to a location that isn't quite as warm? I know they dont like direct sunlight should the grow light be further away from the trays? The varieties are Sunny Lady Red and Bruno Red.

I would keep them where they are. They like light not sun. Florecent lights are no where near as strong. The plants see it as bright shade which they like a lot.
