stupid ? about lighting...

thsi might be a really stupid question, but i have a 2 gallon tank that i wanna start a mini reef in. I also have a UV light that i used to used for reptiles. I know that those lights are supposed to replicate the suns rays as much as possible right? So would this one that i put the link to possibly work for any corals? I'm planning on buying a pc light, but if i dont have to...well heres the link.

Not sure about that bulb but Coralife makes a 10 watt and a 20 watt 50/50 bulb that is great for nanos. You want the light spectrum to be 6500K or higher. The 50/50 bulb is 10K with an 03 actinic.
