leds on its way

I have some new lighting coming for my 50 gal bow front. The specs on the light is as follows"

2 modes: only blue light on/ all white and blue light on
Pure white 6000-6500K/Cold White 10000-12000K
40~45 lumen each led.
Blue Wavelength: 450-460nm
power wattage is 30 watt
60 leds 30 white and 30 blue

I am just wondering if it will be enough to start putting coral etc into my tank.
thanks in advance.

You're going to be limited in the corals, but it should support some (mushrooms and polyps). Maybe even LPS up higher.
