I already have the lights, that`s why this thread was started about the corals. I have left them on a whole day and they have not gotten any hotter the the lights that originally came with the tank.

I had lps and softies in my 29 gallon under 78 watts of t5 HO. You should be ok with those, I even added a Monty cap and it did pretty well. I have switched to LEDs but I kept a hammer for 8 months with my previous lights and it doubled in size in that time.

Alright thanks. I really like the lights I'be got. My tank is only a 25. I'll stick to softies and lps then.

Thank you to everybody that has helped

I think the corals I`m getting for sure is frogspawn, Kenya tree, mushrooms, and a candy cane. Depending on how those grow, I`ll look into diffrent kinds
