On a tank of that size it may be hard. I would suggest a Galaxy Light (http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...54&pcatid=8154) or this light: http://www.marinedepot.com/ps_ViewIt...131~tab~1.html. I think the Galaxy is 18W, and I am unsure of the second.

That tank is too small for even 1 clown of any specie. You can only keep 1 very, very small fish in there (Clown Gobies, Green Banded Goby, Neon Blue Goby, etc).

You should be able to grow corals in that tank with those lights. I would use the LED light personaly for best growth.

What is 5 watts? The lights I mentioned, or your lights?
