That's not a whole lot of light. I have more watts of LEDs over my 10g fresh tank and its not quite enough for that

I am new to the saltwater world but I have read ALOT!! Coraline algea seems awesome in the beginning but quickly becomes something else you have to clean off the glass. I am still debating if I wanna go that route..

I remember when I was soo excited about my coralline algae starting to grow.. Now I just dread having to chisel it off the front pane of my aquarium weekly. It's really a love hate relationship with it.
