depends on the corals. I have 4x65 PCs on my 55 and as nice as it looks, it would really only work for medium light corals placed higher up in the tank.

My mushrooms and LR flourish, but i had a couple of corals that are medium-high light requirement that came as hitchhikers and one has receeded completely and one is surviving, but not not expanding very much.

So, good for low to medium light corals but you'll want brighter if you want medium to high light dependent corals.
