What size tank do you have? What wattage are the bulbs and how many bulbs? With this info we can give you a general idea.

Agreed. I've got 4 x 65's on a 72g. Got xenia out the whazzoo, shrooms, ricordias, star polyps, leathers, frogspawn, hammer - - even got a deresa clam been doing fine for 2 years on the bottom of the tank.

Also, I'd recommend Eric Borneman's Coral book for more research. Gives you the skinny on various coral with care and lighting requirements.

I use the same setup and keep lots of softies (shrooms, leathers, zoos, star polyps..) and a hammer coral as well as anemones. There are anemone's that would do well under those lights (bta, lta) but I wouldn't suggest getting one til the tank is good and stable, 9-12mo down the road.
