I've added a frogspawn to my 1+year old tank since about 3 weeks ago.
Water conditions are ok and I've been told that frogspawns are not picky about light but regardless its location in the tank, I dont see its tentacles opening as I've seen in videos/stores

I though it was the current and already upgraded to a koralia 1200-1500 with no change in the way it behaves so I am thinking if it might be the light.

I am currently using 2x beamswork EA FSPEC LED (Lumen: 120, LEDs: 27x 0.50, Config: 16x 10000K, 6x Actinic 460nm, 3xRed 620nm, 2x Green 520n)

In the future I would like to have both soft and stony corals
Is my light sufficient or totally inappropriate?

Feedback appreciated.

I think you want something with more blue - most saltwater lights are at least 50% blue. I had one similarly powered (.5w LEDs) and my frogspawn did okay under it, but it was RIGHT under it, I had to have it far up on the rocks so it was pretty much directly under the light.
