What lights do you have? What is your tank size and what do you already have in the tank?

I think the names are all correct, except for the comet coral. I have never heard of that. I assume you mean 'torch' coral.

I am not sure that your tank lights can support a BTA. They need really good lighting, and pristine water conditions. Also, they move around the aquarium with their 'foot', so they could sting/damage some of your corals, too.

If the T5's are of the HO variety then the 6 bulb will be fine for a BTA. I have some BTAs myself and they have done fine under T5HO's. They will move to whatever spot they please though, so be ready to move some corals around so they don't get mowed down.
