That's not correct. Limiting the time of light exposure is a tried and proven method. Check your reference books.

If you subject a coral to hi intensity light for 2 hours or 6 hours, it's still too much light.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ok but those light loving corals are not going to be very happy. I've never kept sps corals just lps and soft corals. Each year I replace the T5 lights and I do this all at once and because the intensity is stronger I start off with giving them a couple of hours each day unroll I reach the 8 hr lighting period. Their happy and growing and I've been doing this with pc lighting and T5. To each his/ her own!
