Need help lighting for reef tank

My light system is
Coralife Aqualight T-5 HO Dual Light
Bulbs- 10.000k 31w HO and Actinic 31w t-5 HO

Coralife Aqualight Dual light not High Out
Bulbs- 10,000k F-18 T-5 BP and Actinic F-18 T-5

Now ? Do i hve the right lights to start growth for Zoanthids?
How long do i run the lights?
Do i run both lights at same time? Or split the time between the two?
Bc the F-18 t5 BP lights seem to be a good moon light?
I have a Zoanthid sitting up on rock is that a good spot? Picts
Thk you

How big of a tank? Looks like a 20g tall. Usually they want at least 3 watts per gallon.

I meant to write 29. Lol. //thumbs up\\To the previous post. It should be fine. But you will be wanting to go the led route. There decently cheap and they last soo much longer. And no need for bulb changes. I just got the 120w dimmable full spectrum cree for 140 shipped. Let you know how it is Monday.
