Nano reef lighting (PLEASE HELP)

(**if you know anything about lighting please answer)

So when I had a freshwater I bought a aquarium led strip and now that I’ve cycled a saltwater I’ve tried to get lighting to support coral, I bought a 10w 50/50 cfl which on the box said it was perfect for Nano reefs however I was told it was not enough watts, now I have a par38 39 watt bulb and it’s supppper bright however I don’t know if it’s the right spectrum it looks a little on the yellow side and there is not any blue light other then the led strip, can I grow low/medium light corals (green star polup, zoanthids)

It will definitely grow them but the colors of the coral may not be as colorful as you want.
