What is the Kelvin Rating?

Any chance I can get a pic of the lights, or the name? I have some decent knowledge about what is good for SW and what is not.

how many watts are the bulbs each and what do you have under them? most recommend at least 4 watts per gallon while other corals require 10or more. also if the color doesn't look right it may be the height the lights are from the surface of tank. how high up are they?
