    Looking at the specs of 40 led's with only 3.5w I would think it was a light for either a fish only tank or a freshwater tank. I doubt you'll be able to grow any light demanding corals under it. If you do want to try then perhaps experiment with a small frag of a kenya tree or zoanthids or something similar. My LFS has a pico tank with one of these clip on led lights with a few zoanthids under it and they seem to be doing quite well, they've been in there for a few months already, certainly not ideal lighting but they seem to be growing well.
