If you could post a link to which LED unit you are looking at, it would help.

What 70w MH bulb are you using?

How high above your tank is the 70w MH?

When you say it is a Softie Tank, is it Zoa/Paly dominated or do you also have Mushrooms, Leathers, etc?

All of this info will help us to give you a better answer.

How high above your tank is the 70w MH? ------------about 5-7inches above the waterline.

The LEDs would be good for enhancing fluorescence and "pop" of your corals' colors.

I know that some 70w 20k MH bulbs can wash out coral colors. My Ushio 20k did that.

The tank will probably look really blue though.

If you like blue, that's not an issue.

If the LEDs are 1w LEDs they will probably work fine without being too strong for your Softies.

More powerful LEDs might be too much.
