Are you talking about coralline? Different lighting would affect the coralline growth, yes, but there are many different types of coralline, some faring better with less light.

Or are you talking about Macros and other things like that? They would also benefit, but you would do well to be more specific.

While more intense lighting may increase coraline growth, you can still get good growth under NO flouresent as long as you have plenty of CA in the water and a high ALK.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
