Lighting for hard corals?

Hi All,

This is going to sound stupid but how much light do hard corals need? I mean I know that different hard corals need different amounts of light and that soft corals don't need as much light but when the care information for hard corals says low lighting what does it mean? How much is low, moderate and high? I mean I have 26 Watts in the form of T5's and 2 led panels with 9000k output, its not a deep aquarium (only 12 gallons) will this be enough light to keep some of the less demanding hard corals like Fungia plating corals?

Many thanks,

Daniel Bell
