Yes, you should be able to keep some acros and clams. Just remember, light is only part of the equation. In my experience, I've found current and water quality to be far more important. In the old days, my brother had a tank with two 400 watt halides, but poor parameters (no maintenance ever) and no current. He bought a bunch of sps
including acros and they were all dying. I thought I would give them a shot, since they were dying anyway, and sure enough most of them grew back amazingly. I had a small tank (30 gal
's and tons of current. Your t5's should have plenty of light to grow what you want, of course pretty much all of today's options for lights are pretty good. I can't believe how good one of my reefs is doing under 1 watt leds. Good luck and let us know how your lights work out.
