Do I have enough LED light?

Hey, so I just bought 2 Panorama Module 8000K White/453nm Actinic Blue for $80 off of craigslist (and he included heaters, filters, & salt, misc. for free!) and I was wondering if these two will be enough to grow even low lighting corals like mushrooms, zoas, softies, etc in a 30 gallon tank. He had the modules in his 12 gallon and used them to grow macro algae. I was thinking if it's not enough light I would add some cheap T5 HOs (idk how many I would need ). Also, I might just put these over a 30-40 gallon tank instead, but I don't know how freshwater plants would do with 8000K and not 6,500K. Mostly a sw lighting question, but if you do FW too, would love to see what you have to say!

Does anyone have an idea? I was thinking about putting this over either an angler tank or seahorse tank that I want to build soon. If that idea doesn't work out then I'll be looking into a FW planted tank. Any advice on this would be much appreciated!
