my aquarium is 39.4x15.78 inches and 17.7 inches height
and i want to buy a zoanthid i currently have 4 leds lights 6500k (im currently using only 2) that i used for my planted tank (i dont have it anymore)
i was thinking on buying 2 PAR38 Actinic LED Light - RapidLED would that be enough for zoanthids?

Welcome to the hobby!
Lighting is a tricky thing, but from what you said, you should have enough light.

Do your research and read, read, read!

to be honest for only 20 dollars more (that would be taken up by the cost of the lamp necks) you may want to look into something like this https://www.amazon.com/MarsAqua-Dimmable-Aquarium-Freshwater-Saltwater/dp/B017GX73YY

To add to the post above me I like Mr. saltwatertank and he has great advice (and t-shirts) but I have to say to watch out, he is a bit of a shill for ETM.
