I'm back to salt life after some years off. I'm going to have my son build a 10gal (stock high) nano with me. I know Ill end up with a reef like I have kept in the past. Don't tell my wife but I bet I end up with another 100+ gal at some point. Can you guys give me an LED light recommendation? I would rather buy the correct reef light to start.
Thanks all

Nano box!!! I wanted one but being in Canada it would have cost me close to 450-500 $!!!! So I got a Kessil A80, and i'm soooo happy with it!! But my is a 7g so for a 10 gallon not enough IMO. if you want a kessil I would get a A160. A lot of people have AI, but i'm not a fan of the color and disco ball effect. And with kessil with the controller programming is easy, but with the wifi application for AI it seems like to many options lol.

I use a marine orbit on my Mr. Aqua 12 long. SPS and LPS. These lights work great on a shallow tanks like the 12 long as it's only about 8 inches deep.

SPS under a MO? You must mean Monti and birdsnest, no way a acro would do well under one. I've had one when I had a 14 gallon Biocube super weak light.

On a 10g AI prime would do nicely
