That should be fine for you to keep pretty much anything but SPS corals I think.

That would be a good amount of light for most mushrooms, zoos, olyps, leathers and LPS corals. I think you could even keep a few select species of SPS corals and clams.

skip the clams and SPS and you would be fine for most LPS, polyps and softies.
