Need help with lighting

How's it going everyone? I have a few what seem silly questions and would love some help.

first things first, I primarily care for a Reef tank. this is my first planted tank and I'm going with small 10 gallons. I did a little research on lighting but I still have questions

I have some left over lights from my first reef tank and they are Current Marine PRO LED. i don't want to spend money on a new lighting system for this 10 gal. so any suggestions on setting these lights for the plants, i don't need rapid growth i just want the lights to be able to maintain and keep these plants looking beautiful, slow growth is fine.

these lights have dual day light LEDS 8,000k/12,000k is this sufficient 18watts. is this sufficient enough?

thanks everybody would love opinions
