Coral limitations with my lighting?

Hello,

I have a 46 gallon bow front with approx dims 36"X16"X21".
My lighting is a 36" Coralife compact fluorescent with 96W 10,000K daylight and 96W true actinic (192W total).

Do I have limitations with my lighting? What corals can I not support?

Thank you,

Don

YOu can no support SPS at a depth any lower than 8" below the water surface and you should stay away from clams. You will be fine with mushrooms, soft corals, and most LPS corals.
