Coralife BioCube 29 LED Bars

Has anyone tried to add additional LED bars to their BioCube? Mine is set up as a reef system with live rock, corals and fish.

I bought 4 additional LED bars and installed them 2 ea lunar blue and cool white. I don't know if they're enough light to replace the daylight and actinic blue CFL bulbs or if I still need to run all the lights.

Any thoughts on this?

I don't think those lights can replace the your normal running lights, those would be used for a Fish only tank, won't sustain corals. You need better LED's if you plan on keeping Corals under there.

I'm not exactly sure what LEDs were talking about. Are they additional stock ones that come with the tank?

For LEDs I usually look at wattage (don't know if this is proper). I'm currently running 4 led strips across mine a 9w each
