these are normal output NO T5s. To light a tank for viewing they would be fine but will not penetrate deep enough with proper spectrum for coral growth.

I am a doofus, I failed to notice this was a FOWLR. So far T5s have proven to be the best of the NO family. I have had HO T5s and loved them far better than VHOs. For a FO, they'll be great but still may not support coraline growth on the rocks.
