Lighting for a shaving brush plant

Have a 30g long with two 24watt bulbs one 10k and the other is actinic. Is that sufficient?

I have some small ones growing on a piece of live rock, but I bought some from reefs2go with a small refugium starter kit and it fell apart also, I had it in with a mangrove tree and my light ( a regular 24" t8 bulb ) was burning the mangrove so I took it off and now the mangrove is fine but the shaving brush is all but completely gone, but I like the mangrove tree so it's ok.
