Yup, they should be fine. So you got 2 x white an 2 x actinic yeah? What wattage are they? I used to have the same ones over my 55g only reason I changed was the replacement bulbs thingy

I don't remember the watts but reviews seem good so that's why I went with them haha but ya I heard changing the bulbs can build up after awhile but my last question for the coral is how do you get it off the plug it came on?

Ah, that I can't help you with either. I have never bought a frag on a plug mine all come on bits of live rock. I am guessing you would leave it on there? Hopefully someone else can help you there... I liked the t-5s I think they are a good choice over a 55g and you can always add more if you wanna do sps down the track. Post pics of your new additions!

You want to keep the frag on the plug. It will over grow it with time.

In terms of t5, still a good light choice for a 55. 55 to me is the last step before you get into large tanks, where t5ho don't make economical sense to me.

Not yet I think. Ive it another 2 or 3 days, then see how its doing. Remember these are flowers or plants, they're not going to always "open" in a matter of minutes. Try to give it a low flow area and just let it do its think. Kenya's are pretty resilient.

I wouldn't worry to much about it.. Give it a little bit of time to adjust and it will be fine.
