Lights for 2O Gallon Reef

So right now I have a 20 gallon fowlr tank with 2 clown fish that is doing real good. I would like to add some zoas and some candy cane coral. My current lights are the Current USA Satellite Single Compact Fluorescent, 1X65 Watt, 24 inch which has
  • One 65 Watt SmartPaq 50/50 Lamp (10,000K/460nm Actinics)
  • One lunar light
Would these lights be fine? If not what should I be looking to get before adding the coral. Thanks

That would be OK for some soft and LPS corals.
