Would my lighting be sufficient for Candy canes?

The label says they are 2 55w T5 compact fl.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Do you think a Trumpet coral would work too? They look similar, but I just want to make sure. Liveaquaria has some pretty cool green ones.

Saltwater Aquarium Corals for Marine Reef Aquariums: Trumpet Coral


Thanks!!

Those are kryptonite candy corals. I have some. They look awesome under the blues

That's good.

I like scans too, do you think they would be suitable with my lighting?
