Like I said, I'm new to this whole saltwater thing so please don't get mad If these questions are stupid.
So the coraline will still grow with the lighting I have now but the plant like stuff growing on the rocks will die. Is that what your saying? Also, coraline Is the purple stuff on the live rocks right?

No, you do not have enough light to support coraline in that size tank. My reference was to spectrum only. Spectrum = the color of the light, you need more intensity. Intensity = brightness.

Yes coraline is a calcerous algae found in many colors, but the purple is very common in rock from the south pacific.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, my comment was not directed to you, but nevertheless, I should apologize to you and wseaton, it does come across as a snotty attitude, that was not my intention and I apologize.
