depends how bright it is. hard to tell from the picture, but i would.
what are you trying to accomplish with the moonlights? if they are just for your viewing pleasure, i'd shut them off when i went to bed.

are they 1 watt leds? just because they are leds, doesn't means they can sustain corals. i can't seem to find any information on the internet about aquazonic.

They produce 20.9 each set. I think these were from singapore. A friend of mine sent it over. Anyways i'll let you know if my corals died. But for now they look more healthy than before maybe because the lights now is not as hot as before.

i doubt those fixtures can sustain corals. they are not even 1 watt LED. the little ornamental LEDs like the ones you have don't put out enough PAR i'm afraid.
just watch the color of your corals- if they start to fade or brown out, you'll need to upgrade in a hurry. I would especially be concerned about that clam.

Almost USD 400 for the 3 panels. Regarding the lumens I'm not sure coz there was no indication in the box.
