What light do i get for corals in 2.5G tank?

I am setting up either a 2.5 gallon or a 5 gallon reef tank. This tank will be all corals as i already have a 155 fowler for fish. I really love corals so thats why im setting this up. I am looking for a cheap light that can grow many soft corals. I have been looking at the 18w par 38s on amazon but idk if those would work? Any help appreciated greatly!!

Par 38 bulb should work fine in that scenario.

I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
