While it may work for some softies, you can do alot better. I have 130 watts (2x65W) on my 29G reef. You want to aim for a minimum of 3 watts per gallon. I think you would be disappointed with two of those lights personally. You would do much better with one of these, http://www.marineandreef.com/Aqualig...p/res53104.htm And its cheaper. This is the same light I have on my reef just bigger, http://www.marineandreef.com/Lunar_A...p/res53404.htm I love the lunar lights!

What are the dimensions of your tank?

I know that there is a 40 breeder (36"x18"x16") and a 40 long (48"x13"x16"). I only ask because there is a T5HO out by Current USA, the Nova Extreme. This is an 8-bulb unit w/ Lunar lights. I know its pricey, but you can keep almost anything under it!

I see no problem with the pair of Watchman's and the Pistol with the other inhabitants.
