You should be able to grow coraline with the bulbs you have with the addition of calcium. The best results would be to add another light strip with 2 bulbs for a little more wattage (total 120w). This will help you grow the coraline you want.

My tank is a 40gal breeder, so its not very high. The light should penetrate the water very well. What do u think?

If all you're looking for coraline, then what you have should be fine. If you want to enhance the looks more pleasing to the eye, I would simply add another light strip with a couple more 36" bulbs.

If you are looking for a more blue effect, then I would add a Blue Moon NO and maybe a 50/50. This will look great, and add the color you are looking for.
