Its fine. Mine was like that for well over a year when i had the same setup. I do recommend changing the bulbs though. AquaticLife makes pretty good 18" bulbs that will take the light level up a bit.

4 T5HO lights on a 10 gallon and I think you have plenty of light.

Plenty strong enough. Though try to get at least one more atinic to replace one 10k. They will pop like crazy.
