I haven't heard good things about those lights for corals. With only 18w of daylight (the blue lights are not actinic lights but moon lights) you probably won't have enough quality light for your tank. You will want some light in the 420/460nm range.

Will it help if I add one more so two of the LEDs fixtures ?

Doubtful. Sadly they named these to mislead. If you want coral if look into s whole different unit. E what kind of corals do you want to keep?

I agree with sniper. You'll need much more light. There are a ton if options out there that aren't too bad as far as price. There are some that are crazy expensive as well. I guess the real question you may want to post on here is what lights NOT to get. I would be curious as to what people have to say!
