1w LEDs won't do anything except light the tank up. For any coral growth it must be atleast 2w or each bulb. It's easier to just buy the marineland reef capable light fixture. I have one and it worked great till I went to MH. I have half tank MH and half led to see the better growth. Some corals are better under LEDs but most thrive better under MH. Ecoxtic makes amazing led fixtures. If you can afford it. They have some light fixtures that have MH and led together.
