T8s won't support corals at all. If you want fluorescents you'll need at least a 4 bulb T5HO for some corals or a 6 bulb for almost all corals. LEDs are an option many are going towards as well. Just make sure they have actinic bulbs as well as 10-14000K bulbs.

Since this thread my 2 new aquaray 600 have arrived a marine white and a marine blue. Would this blue be actinic?? Would 2 blue t5ho and 2 white t5ho ok ?? Or could I get away with the t8s since the LEDs have gone in?? Thanks
