I would wait and see. If your corals and anemone start losing color first.
A friend of mine has Reefbrite strips over a small tank and the PAR numbers are pretty good considering what they are. You can always add one or two of those. Maybe a 50/50 and an actinic.

Ok I'll do some research on that. I'll put some pics up when I get home of what I got in the tank. Maybe u guys can let me know what u think of the coral how they look.

And again thanks so much for the info I'm glad I talked to u guys before I started to buy more coral.

The candycane is fine in low light conditions, and the coco worm is not photosynthetic. The anemone is what I would worry about.

Ok thanks for all your help. All the information you provided me was very helpful. I will keep you posted on the green BTA. As of now he moved once again I'm going to wait a couple of days to try and feed it again and take it from there. If it's still not eating I will probably upgrade the light.

Again, I do not think the reason it's not taking food is because of the light.

I have the same light, but plan on adding supplemental light before adding any SPS! Right now all my LPS and green BTA are doing well!

What do you think it is ? Could it be the water ? I'll check the water again today and post it so you can let me know what you think. I'm sorry if I'm annoying with all of this I'm just new to all of this and would love to get it right. I Don't like to fail at anything.

I'm not annoyed. I don't know what it is. What test kits are you using?
