Is 500 lumens good enough for corals or anemones? 20 gallon nano tank with 2 ocellaris clowns and my lights say they have 8 watts. Does that mean 8 Watts per led?

I've never referred to lumens with LEDs before (only projectors) and I have never heard of 8w LEDs (each) so my guess is you have 8w total. How many LEDs are in your light? What other info do you have on them?

That light wouldn't be enough for a reef tank look into the Taotronics brand on eBay or these http://m.ebay.com/itm/310810806827?nav=SEARCH&sbk=1
