It is def doable. You'll just have to gradually increase the light so you don't burn it to death.

Yes I have corals now that are doing well and are healthy. I will check out new lighting. Is there a specific type or brand I should look for. They originally told me the lights I bought would be good for fish and reef...that must not include anemones or being "great" for reef

There are different levels of reef lighting. Soft corals are pretty low lighting where SPS are high intensity and have very similar light requirements to anemone and clams.

Thank you very much for your help, it would be nice if I could return my light and pay the difference for the upgrade since I bought the lights and they said they would be good for my coral and anemone
