    Generally these LED flood lights have a kelvin rating of 6000k and you would want around 10000k and up for corals. I know you can get these lights with a higher kelvin rating maybe @dallasg can shed some light on these.

    We sell those, while you will get growth, you will get more algae growth as the light is near 6500k and you will hate seeing your fish swimming it tea and its makes the water yellow

    What light are you looking at replacing with these?
