384 watts divided by 29 gallons gives you 13 watts a gallon. this would be extremely high light range. most corals will do well under 7-10 watts per gallon.

384? looks like the 24" fixture is only 130 watts. that'd give you 4.5WPG if I'm not missing something.

AHH My bad! I saw the 24" and read all the way accross to the 384 watts and didn't see that 48" was what i was looking at. then yes, 4.5 is moderate. I use to run some softies under 90 watts of NO on a 50 gallon 36" tank.

www.fantasyreef.com has a good database of compatible corals with medium light needs.

I agree that you are medium light range. That is a good list that Micah gave you.
