Will 18w of leds be enough over 12 gal to support corals?

Got the tank home and getting everything lined up. Got the air line holes plugged on my return pump. And waiting for my plexiglass to get cut for my sump. Hopefully tuesday ill have my plumbing bought. Still tryin to figure out my lighting... I have a 6x3w led that I could probably take apart and use. But will it support anything?

I think a sump for a small tank is a great idea, assuming you can keep the flow appropriate.
