You'd probably need 3-4 par38s on that depending on what you have in there

A taotronics LED unit would be perfect for a tank that size...but your lighting already over the tank should be just fine for zoas and palys.

I'd probably just stick with the t5s but should I upgrade to maybe a 4 bulb fixture? The frag tank mostly contains zoanthids and softies same with my main display.

A 2 bulb t5ho is just fine for soft corals and polyps. You could upgrade, but why if that is all you're going to have in there? And if that was my tank and I was upgrading, I'd get LEDs to save myself money and keep anything photosynthetic my heart desires under it.

Yea true. Just mainly worried that my zoas have lost there color but hopefully new bulbs and really staying on top of my water will turn them back it's just hard cause I'm 16 and I got school and sports.
