xenia under regular flourescents?

Will a xenia do well under normal flourescents? I have read acouple places that mushrooms, xenias, and a few other corals have no problems adapting to
"moderate" light levels.

55 gal FOWLR
Euro-reef 5-2 skimmer, 29 gallon sump
3x penguin 1140 ph
2x65 10,000K and 2x65 03 Acintic
40lbs cc/30lbs argonite sand mixture
80lbs keys rock (www.liverocks.com awesome stuff)
25lbs fiji/tonga lr
10lbs lace base rock (now hapily live with lots of coraline growth)

Xenia need brighter light and normal output will not keep them alive. Some corals may survive under normal output but there will be little to no growth.

and very well under pc, but i have found that they light the high light, the climb up the rock to get closer to the light.
A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.
