I think cg is more referring to your fluorescent lighting. What kind of fluorescents are they? T8, T5? What wattage? How many bulbs? Do they have individual reflectors?

Just because they're blue does not mean they grow coral. They need to have a certain intensity as well to actually aid the zooxthanellae with photosynthesis.

Right, the color really has no influence on color growth. Color relates more how deep it penetrates the water. It relays more on par and such now days

I have one bulb, about 18'' long, with a reflector. I looked at the base of a bulb and saw: FT65W and 460nm
Also, am I stocked out on fish or could I add another one? My tank finished cycling one or two months ago.
