    Couldn't find the specs on the LEDs for that tank but judging from the price of the entire system and similar setups from other manufacturers, I'm going to say maybe/probably to the shrooms and no to the zoanthids. Shrooms can grow under just about any light. The live rock tank at my LFS has had a large rock covered in shrooms for well over 6 months and the only light on that tank are the fluorescent bulbs in the ceiling (room lighting). Not guaranteeing they will thrive but shrooms should survive under those LEDs.
    SG = 1.024-6; Alkalinity 8.3-9.3 dKH; Calcium 420; Magnesium 1300; Temp = 76 to 80; pH = 7.9-8.3. Alkalinity and calcium are dependent on Mg.

    I have one of each size in my office and in the 8 I have a duncan and a chalice doing well under it. My zoas did not do well at the bottom of the tank so I moved them up under the light. I also have a Biocube skimmer in the back.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll try zoas in direct light and if they don't do well I'll just add a par 30 to the mix
