Yeah that won't house anything. You'll need a t5 HO fixture with atleast 36 watts for your tank and then you can house some low-medium light corals.

Yeah but the thing about the lights in those hoods is they aren't fluorescent. There indacecent and those can't house corals.

Go to rapidleds.com and look at the screw in led light bulbs. They are around 70 to 80 and can sustain Lps and Sps corals in a 10gal tank. You will only need one of them
