How much wattage is the t5 I'm assuming it won't be enough for a clam, ric are more finicky with water quality than most other cauliform mushrooms

I suggest getting a much better light. I have that same one on my 3 gallon and it's only moderate light. On a 10 gallon you'll have issues keeping even low light stuff. Get a 20 inch 4 bulb t5 of you want a shot at a clam

A ten week cycle?!? That seems a little over the top, no?

I have two of those lights. I briefly used both of them over a ten gallon.

 

Over a ten gallon you're only really going to be okay for softies (your mushroom will be okay) and non-photosynthetic corals. You might be able to get away with some LPS (that you're feeding directly). There is no way you can keep a clam with it, or sps. I'm not sure about the rics, but they might be okay.
