Enough Lighting?

I have a 46 gal bow front tank. It is currently a FOWLR tank but after it matures, I want to add some coral and anemones. I have been using the standard lighting that came with the tank but I am ready to upgrade my lighting now. I was thinking about buying the Coralife Lunar Aqualights. It has 2-96 watt bulbs and 2-3/4 watt moon lights. Is this enough lighting for corals and anemones?
