    Default Compatible corals with my lighting

    I would like to know what corals I can add in my tank, I'm aware no SPS but soft corals and mushrooms could be nice.
    I have a 18" T8 power Glow 15W it produces apparently 18k. Not aware if this is good enough, from what I am reading a T5 is what you need for corals. But 18k ... That's high no ? My tank kis only 10inches high too.

    Any list of ideas what I can keep with this type of fluo

    That fixture could work. You have to keep in mind, with marine aquariums, the higher the color temp of the lighting, the better it will be for corals and lessen the usable light for marine algae.

    If you are going to use that fixture, I would suggest getting a 22,000K bulb and sticking to mushrooms and some of the easier to grow polyps. Zoas might also work with that lighting. Just place them on top of your rocks so they will get more of the light. These are about the easiest corals to keep, a lot less demanding on water quality, lighting, and flow as compared to other types of corals.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
