Can my set-up support Torch coral?

Im running a 35 gallon tank, skimmer, and 2 36inch marine glow actinics with electronic balast. Right now i have one candycane coral that has grown quite a bit, i have a colt, and a leather coral. So can i support a largish piece of torch coral?
thnaks guys

If you have plenty of space to give it and moderate lighting (I'm not familiar with your lights), it would probably do fine.

And by plenty of space, make sure it's atleast 5 inches around torch. They have VERY long sweepers that will stings nearby corals. I have experienced this first hand.

I have mine under 130 watt 50/50 PC lighting and it is doing great. Tank is 29 gallons.
