I don't think so but I could be wrong. I Think that if your going to keep corals, you should be able to not have to worry as much on the actual lighting reqs. With that light you could keep some softies but I'm not sure about anything else. A great fixture is a light from fishneedit.com. It's a four bulb fixture that works amazing. Only problem is no moonlight. I haven't heard ANY bad reviews on it yet. I own it and can say nothing but good things. It's 125$ but worth every penny. You can keep clams with it of the tanks shallow enough or is placed high enough.

I have never target fed mine.

"The Hawaiian Feather Duster uses the radiole to filter out small floating organisms, which it directs toward its mouth located at the center of the crown."
" It needs to be housed in a well-established reef system, as it is dependent upon plankton for its diet."
"Supplemental feeding of phytoplankton and liquid organic foods should be provided."

So just make sure you are contributing a little plankton to your tank to keep it happy. If you have corals- they will need this as well.

I have really little ones. They are filter feeders so I've heard that you don't have to feed them. If you want to, you could I guess. It wouldnt hurt it.
