Question about Lights...

When buying fish, corals, ect. online, It often says what kind of light of lights are recommended. It usually says low medium and high. I was wondering if there were any sort of standards for this.

For example: would 4X65 watt Lunar Aqualight (2)10K and (2) Actinic 65 Watt Power Compact bulbs with (3) Blue Moon Glow LED Lights, be considered low, med, or high??

• 150 gallon Glass 48LX24WX30H
• 55 Gallon Sump
• 2x 48" Coralife Aqualight (520W Total)
• 3 Powerheads
• Over 130 lbs Live Rock
• Silica Sand/Crushed Coral as substrate

Fish: • Humu Picasso Triggerfish • Ocellaris Clownfish • Flame Hawkfish • Dragon Goby • Blue & Yellowtail Damsel • Blue Tang • Convict Tang • Yellow Tang

Creepies: • Many Blue / Red Hermits and Snails
