Question Buying a new light

I want to know what kind of coral and anenomes I would be able to have if i bought this light?


48" T5HO T5 Aquarium Light

Total output: 216W
Supports: 4 x 54W T5, 4 x Double Bluemoon LED
Fixture Size: 47.75" x 7.25" x 2.00"
Ballast Type: Internal Electronic
Power Cords: 3
On/Off switch: 3
Cooling Fan: yes
Splash Protection: Acrylic Lens
Type of Bulb: 2 Pin T5

I have a 48"x 18"x 20" aquarium. I have about 48 lbs. of LR (and getting more), and I have about a solid 1"- 2" of LS (I don't know how many lbs. it is).
Thank you for the help.

You would be able to keep most LPS softies and some SPS corals. If you bump that up to the 6x54w version you should be ok for most SPS, clams and anemones as well.
