I am hoping to turn my regular salt water aquarium into a reef aquarium. My tank is a 46g bow-front. It is approximately 36L x 20H x 13W. I currently have a Marineland "Reef cable" LED System on top but it has come to my attention that it is significantly under powered for most corals.

I was hoping you guys could give me a basic guideline to how much lighting I need to add to be sufficient for most coral as well as what corals require what kind of lighting. I am hoping to stay with LEDs or T5 lighting.

I will post a link to my current lighting below as I am one post away from being able to post links.
