T5 HO equivalent to this ?

I'm looking at either a 216watt t5 HO fixture or this LED fixture ... I want corals and anemones at one point. These are the specs... Will this LED fixture be enough for my tAnk? It's a 50 gallon.



Fixture Size: 48.00" x 5.00" x 1.00" (Add 0.65" in height with bracket installed)


LEDs Count: 54
3340 Lumens
Super energy efficient 1 watt HQ LEDs
46x 10,000K LEDs
8x Actinic 460nm LEDs
Use 54 watts


Features:
Slim and contemporary light design
2x on/off function for day and night use
Extend up to 60" in length with bracket installed
Splash guard

No, this fixture would not be sufficient on a 50 for most coral. 1 watt diodes are extremely under-powered, and I really think you would see issues, especially towards the sand bed.
