is a average amount of light for your tank but it would really depend on the depth as well. Plates are very adaptive and do not require intense light at all. They must be placed on the substrate though and do not do well on abrasive surfaces. If the tank is only about 18" high you should be okay. Just remeber to monitor chem levels.

Plates will attack (literally consume) other closely located corals if they can but do not as a rule engage in "cross-tank" warfare. Personally I would suggest looking at another cause or coral. If chemical in nature, aggressive skimming + GAC
will usually eliminate the problem.
What coral is being affected and how far apart are they? Many soft corals in the tank?
