I'm on day 13 of my 10g nano and have finally found my light, I am waiting on a 74 watt quad fixture with 2x 10k, 2x blue antinic, 2x blue moon led.

 

With this light I figure I can get a large variety or coals. Maybe an anenome.

I'm not sure of the brand but I just ordered it. I figured I should just go ahead an get the good one now because if I ever went with a 20g or 15g I have the light I need. It is 20" but has expandable brackets up to 24".

It will be overkill on a 10g, but not terrible overkill.

 

You will want to be careful in acclimating new corals to your tank, you'll be getting (probably) around 300ppfd (PAR) all over the place in your tank, if your light has individual bulb reflectors. That's pretty bright.

How can that be overkill? Everyone that I've seen on here with a 10th gallon nano have a coralife 96w fixture. Mine is only 72 watts, 4x 18w bulbs.

Sounds a lot like the Odyssea 20" 4x18W fixture. It should be fine for a 10g tank, but it's not going to be a top performer. Under driven ballasts, flat reflector, but decent bulbs. The 12K daylights are a little green though.
