position of lights?

I have 4 PC all together on a 50gal with LR for right now:
1 24in 65w 10k (back right of the tank)
1 24in 65w actinic (back left of the tank)
1 34in 96w 10k (whole front of the tank)
1 34in 96w actinic (whole middle of the tank)
2 moonlights ( middle of the tank)
does it matter where I position the lights for coraline to grow and do I have to make changes later on when I get corals?TIA

I think you're fine. The only thing I would do is, when it's time to change bulbs, I'd replace the 65w lights with 50/50's for more even coverage.

Should be alright, you need to use the calculator on this site that takes into account for the size of the tank.
