Yea. Do you know why you have to have special kind of lights for corals? Because there isn't a special type of light in the ocean besides Mother Nature (sun). So wouldn't the coral be alright if I had regular light and the tank was near a window? I have always wondered.

Well most corals don't grow a few feet underwater like freshwater plants. The light gets filtered through the ocean. So it's a little different than natural sunlight by the time it gets to the coral. It is still very bright though, unlike a lot of freshwater plants that grow in murky conditions. That's why they need lots of it.
