Coral Light Question

Hello, I dont know if i have enough light to start adding in corals yet. Currently i have ..

All-Glass Fluorescent Twin Tube Strip Light- 36" (Black)
1 Corelife Actinic 03 Blue 30 watt, 36inch, 180 output
1 All-Glass Aquarium 25 watt

Would this be enough light for 65gal tank or should i add more?

What kind of corals do you want to keep? That's the big question. Right now, your lighting would let you keep the lowest of low light corals. Not many choices, upgrading to compact fluorescent or metal halide would greatly expand your options. What you decide to upgrade to really depends on what you would like to keep...

How big is your tank?

EDIT: Duh.. ignore me I'm blind.. anyway I don't think you've quite got enough there for anything except the very low light stuff.
