Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!!
What type of "stuff" would you like to have grow on the LR? If you are talking about purple coraline algea the lights you have will be just fine. Coraline depends on a high ALK and Calcium level in the tank more then it does on lighting. IF you want to try your hand at corals you will need more intense light.
