Excellent, and what did you have for a CUC? I see two clowns in there as well?

How long have you had the corals listed? What color or growth changes have you witnessed during this time? These questions will answer if the light will work or not.

What issues do you have with the light mr. X? Wattage? Lumens? You hadn't answered that yet

I don't have any issues with the light. I have never used it. Lumens is not a good gauge to measure the PAR/PUR of an LED fixture. Some seem dimmer than florescent lighting to the naked eye, but penetrate much better.
I would check it with a PAR meter for starters, even though this can be misleading, but someone's first hand experience with the fixture would probably be the best thing to go by.

That was back when I had a 10, I have upgraded now but I had most of the corals in there for 8-10 months before upgrading. My hammer grew very well from 2 heads to about 7 in that span. My Duncan went from 2 to 15 in the same span. My zoas grew very well too. Color was ok at best, but they can definitely grow coral. Green corals and red had the best color. I wouldn't keep sps under it. I had a birdsnest and monti cap but they didn't grow. But lps and softies will do fine.

So my lighting should arrive tomorrow. I was wondering what I need to get to start having coral in my tank? What test kit? What supplements (if any)? etc
