enough light?

i am thinking about starting a saltwater reef tank, do you think 130watts will be enough for 36 gallon bowfront (18 in to the bottom)
i would like to hold a good variety of corals ( nothing to advanced though)
if you could please answer as soon as possible that would be greatly appriceated :)

thank you

one more thing, should i get 1 daylight and 1 actinic or 2 50/50? this light fixture is a powercompact by the way

10 gallon freshwater

you could keep soft corals and maby some lps at the top of the tank with that light... i prefer a daylight and an antic because you can do a dawn/dusk cycle...

and just a little tip, place the antic in the front of the aquarium and the daylight at the back... it looks better that way for some reason
