So a par 38 wouldn't work for a 10 gallon frag tank?

It would for some corals, but some light hungry SPS and a few LPS wouldn't do well.

Is this your first saltwater reef? If so I would highly highly reccomdend staying away from sps. A par38 from reefbreeders will grow montipora but otherwise ur options on sps are very limited. I would say do a soft coral tank with some lps and once you get the hang of properly maintaining your tank then try some sps. If you want a nice, sleek little light that grow softies and lps then I would reccomend the ecopico led arm with 3 of the 12k/453nm mix strips. I would do 2 of them on that tank. It will run you ~$120 but is well worth it. I have these lights over my 8g aqueon evolve and have been able to grow montipora and even a pocilliopora. I have 2 light arms, 6 strips in total. 4 mix strips and 2 completely 453nm blue strips
