I think you might want to read this article and
then explore the Internet a bit more on the subject
of reef keeping. There seems to be a difference
between the lighting and water quality requirements
for hard and soft corals.

If you were to give me the size of your tank, I'd be able to recommend a few different light setups. WPG rules don't really work very well. There's a few different kinds of light and many different tank shapes that throw off simple equations like that.
