    Light is dependent on what you are planning to keep in the tank. That would be perfect for a fish only system or some very low light corals. But I would say you need to get better lights if you have any plans on keeping corals alive long term.

    IMHO those lights are insufficient for any corals and would only work for a fish only system.

    If you plan on keeping corals then i would say that 2x 54w T5's (1x actinic and 1x 12000K) would be a minimum
