Marineland tank LEDs strong enough?

I have 2 Marineland tanks a 5g and a 20g that come with LEDs. Are these lights strong enough to grow Zoo's or any type of coral if that?

Ha. No.

Those are 0.1 watt LEDs. Total wattage is less than 5 W. but none of the Marineland lights are reef capable.

For a 5 gallon look into par30 or par38 bulbs. I bought 2 from boosted.com for a 20 gallon.. Rapid led also has their version.. Just don't get the ones they sell at home depot
