I'm not planning on getting any coral or anemones in my 10 gallon, I was only getting live rock, and 3 small fish, 1 of them a percula clown, what would be the minimum amount of lighting I could get??

a 15watt no 50/50 flouresent would do nicely. also it would be best if you just got the one false percula.

Live rock doesn't need any light. some people use it in their sumps as extra filtration.
If you want some coraline growth, I believe that lighting is sufficient.

You can go with the standard lighting with a fo tank. Corriline growth isnt really affected by light but a good alkalinty and calcium level makes it grow. The only thing it affects is the color of it. You don't have to upgrade until you get into the corals.
