Sounds like one of the Chinese led boxes like mars aqua, the answer is yes that would be sufficient. I had a mars aqua on 60 cube for a few a months with good color and growth

I have had good luck for a year with this on a 24x24x24 60 gallon cube with a glass top. had to turn down the white channel not to fry everything.


I did this testing with the club's par meter:
- the numbers are looking down from top
- back left corner is the overflow, hence the NA
