New to LED, is this enough light?

Hi everybody!

I'm starting a 210G predator tank and will have tons of live rock and a bare bottom. I'm so used to PC lighting but am frustrated at how often you have to change bulbs. Do you guys think these LED's from marinedepot.com would do the job? No corals, just want nice healthy live rock with coralline growth on the rocks.

Didn't want to suppliment with PC/T5/VHO, etc... just LED's. Was thinking of linking 2 of these together (3 tops if you think it's really necessary).

Thanks in advance!! =)

If your not doing corals any light will be fine for fish unless it's insanely bright. Anything that you like will be fine with a FOWLR.

Thanks for the quick response! Just FYI, I'm not so much concerned about the lights for the fish... I'm more concerned that the tank will be bright, and that it'll be enough light for coralline growth for the live rocks.
