Depends on the lights, if they're the standard bulbs I say no.
You could buy a Bio-Cube, it's just a tad but bigger than ten gallons (12 I believe) and comes with everything pre-installed, you just have to assemble it

You can keep basic corals for sure with the stock lights plus it comes with a lid which is handy. I really like my biocube, I have the 29g version.
