I think that should do great for most corals. The lunar lights are cool at night. I think you'd be ok with a 6x54 also. I think the 8x54 is made for deeper tanks but it sure won't hurt to have more light. Just make sure it's not wider than the tank. Your going to want room to feed and adjust things

I'm glad to hear your really reserching the lights. It's easy to buy cheaper ones to get going but you'll probably end up upgrading later. I seen a web site that I believe was called aquarium lighting chart. It has all the tank measurements and what corals will work with different lights
