Any actinics and most 20k 250/400 watt bulbs will do that. Where are the colorful SPS? That is the true test as they are the hardest to keep colored.

Click on a few of these. You will find a T5HO mixed in every once in awhile, you'll have to look pretty hard though.

That looks like a maricultured piece. Lets see the growth/color progression shots of that coral. Maricultured pieces look awesome when then first come in under any lights, but it is also very hard to keep the color under any lights.
