Lighting Stong Enough for a Clam?

I have a 10g nano reef with a 32w PC.(1 10000K and 1 Actinic) Would this be strong enough lighting to keep a clam or anykind?

No. You may put in a deresa but I think long term you should get stronger lighting.

Don't do the derasa, it would spilt your tank apart in no time. They grow very large quickly. I second the no answer but alot of people claim they are doing it in nano tanks just fine

I would not try it. Not worth the risk
