Is this to much light for a 10g?

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...4+113030+22735

Im looking at the dual 20'' 2-40w bulbs. I really like the light just want to make sure its not to much. I want to do some coral later on maybe. After seeing the guys in the other thread.

Do you know of a good light that has actinic light also? i want both. Do you think I could just use a smaller watt bulb? I dont understand why they would sell a 20'' size light that is to much light. Is it to much for hard coral?

I might just go with that light and do hard corals. It will be a long time before I do corals anyways. Hell by the time i decide to I might just set up my 75 gallon for SW.
