    Hi, iv got a 29 gallon bowfront. its 24 inces long and 19 inches tall. Iv got two lights that both fit on it at the same time. One is an aqua sun 24 inch with two 24w T-5 lamps a 10,000 k and a actinic 420. The other light that fits on at the same time is a coralife with a 14w true actinic 03 blue t5 and the other lamp is a 14w 10000k daylight t5. So all together 4 lamps two 24w and 2 14w. I want to have corals, nothing crazy. The lady at the lfs will order me whatever i want. Any suggestions on what will survive with my light setup. It seems like im getting pretty good light out of them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Zoas, Softies (Xenia, GSP, etc..), even low light and moderate light LPS.

    You should be able to keep and soft coral and LPS, lower light SPS on the top of the rocks should be OK also. If you want to keep high light SPS and clams get another 2 bulb T5HO and switch out the actinics for ATI Blue Plus bulbs. Switch out the 10000K for an ATI Purple Plus or KZ Fiji Purple and an ATI Aquablue Special or UVL Actinic White.
