I would say TWO par38's for a ten gallon tank. I ran a single one over a 4g and it was just enough coverage.

Clowns are out of the picture really unless you go a bit bigger. Have you considered an all in one kinda tank like the biocubes, nano cubes or the innovative marine nuvo's?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Not sure, don't have a meter. Admittedly the edges are limited to lower light corals but 1 has been over my tank for a year now.

Beautiful Tank BigRed....the single light has served you well. i still say two but you really have used placement to your advantage.

Ok, so no clowns. 2 par38... Are these halides? Led? I've never heard of them. How many watts are they?

I'm struggling to find all in ones in the uk that aren't ridiculously overpriced

What do you guys think of this? Would I need to buy any additional equipment? Are the lights good?
