Well if your just setting up the tank it won't be stable for any corals and anemones for while. You tank has to be very established and whatever fresh water light you have won't be strong enough for them to live.

Most would suggest the tank to be up for a year before adding anything like this. It will be two to four weeks before the tank is even cycled and you can't even add a fish until the tank the cycled. Reef is recommend three to five watts per gallon for the light depending on what kind of corals you want in there. I would HIGHLY suggest going a little bigger for the tank size. At least a 30 gallon if that is all you can afford. Smaller tanks (as funny as it may sound) usually requires a more experienced person. Now if you do a 10 gallon you probably don't have to wait a year lol but still a good amount of time maybe 6 months.
