Yes, It is best that you get either a 4x54w HO or a 6x54 HO lamp. The bulbs that I would recomend is 2x 420 actinic bulbs and 2x either 10k or 12k bulbs. That light that you have now would work out over a refugium in your sump. You can do a Retrofit if you are handy...something like over Mikes tank.

If you are talking about the actinic bulbs, it's the wavelength of the bulb. It is filled with a gas and when an electric current is pasted through the bulb the gas gets excited and gives of a color that is ....Stuck for a word.....correct for that wavelength...420 or 460 depending on the bulb. The other bulbs...6700k to 20,000k the color goes from a yellow to a crisp white....I hope I did not mix this up...Oh well the Capt will correct me.
