Its a 4 bulb setup, I have a 24inch odyssea on my 29G and all my corals are doing just fine, including softies, LPS and SPS.. and that's a 4 bulb setup (96w)

You can grow lots of corals with an Odyssea fixture. The don't produce as much light as expensive fixtures do but they work just fine for the vast majority of corals. Light hungry animals will need to be placed high, which is standard unless you have strong LEDs or something.

If you're mainly interested in growing SPSs I'd look at something different but loads of people do grow them with Odyssea fixtures. If you want something better but not terribly more expensive you can check out the FishNeedIt T5s. I'm a big fan of soft corals, zoas and mushrooms so the light you're looking at would be fine for that purpose.
