10 gallon reef lighting

I want to have some corals in my 10 gallon tank. Will this lighting be good enough? I believe it's a 13W 9325K bulb.

Hi, Welcome to AquariumAdvice!!
The lighting you described will not be enough to support corals of any type. You should look at upgrading to at least CF lighting. What are the dimensions of your tank?

Pick up a coralife 20" aqualight and you will be set in the lighting dept! What you have now just is not enough.
