lighting for 29 gal tank

Hey guys looks like my fish only tank may turn into a reef tank with low lighting corals someone gave me a corallife 30 inch 65 wat 50/50 strait pin compact light for my birthday my friend who works at petco used to work at petland but had a pay raise to move to petco and has turned my local petco into a great place to buy fish he has them so healthy i know petco has bad rep but he fixed ours but he said its enough light for some zoas and leathers nothing else tho its like 2.24 wats a gallon i guess thats enough for zoas and leathers right?

Yup, it's enough for softies and that's about it. WPG in sw is pointless as you may have heard.

alright yea i have heard but its always good to try to have a good amount of wpg tho i am taking everyones answer on the leathers and zoas by way i aske innovator in a chat just now he was unsure of the leathers but said i could try it so thats one yes one maybe i also plan on having lots of macro alage in this tank so i can take some out and feed to tang also becuase this tank will be hooked up to my 55 gal just have to get some that wont cause a tank crash, like the cheato does already have some in my sump but under low lights

Hey guys when i finally got enough light in my 55 for corals tank was already pretty much matured so i don't know how long to wait before adding corals to this new tank fish (two clowns) will be in it Thursday as it has been cycling for 2 weeks with handfuls of sand, rocks and filter from old tank.

I waited a two months after I saw my last trace of ammonia for coral. WPG is worthless IMO.....PAR, penetration, and the k rating is more important.
