Am setting up a new tank - 75 gallon- have a Coralife 48 inch double linear strip with two 65 watt Actinic and two 65 watt 10,000K compact fluorescent lamps. It worked well with just live rock and fish a few years ago but I am setting it up anew in a new location and want to get into soft corals. Is this enough light for beginner friendly soft corals? I have read about 'upgrade kits' but do not know anything about them or how to set them up. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am setting this all up anew- tank is empty - dont even have water in it yet.

A 4 bulb t5ho will be enough for soft corals.
