Marine lights help!

Would these lights support corals at all?

Maybe softies. You want something with 3 watt LEDs if that's the way you go.

Its just in the description they dont even mention corals or anything which is why I am sceptical about them :/
What's the standard led strength or brightness requirements for corals?

A system with 3 watt LEDs (most will be run at 2 watts which is fine)

Which one of these would be best for growing corals in an 8 gal tank? If any if course!

Any should work I use a beamswork myself... a 36" unit though but they do work. That last one is the strongest for sure but if its too strong you might have to figure a way to raise it higher off the tank since these units don't have dimmers.
