New to reef tanks

So I'm starting a 10g reef tank and need some help with corals. I have low light and was wondering what are some good easy corals I could get and how many corals should I put in a 10g? Thanks

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

1 fluval 14w nano marine led. Everything says it's not enough light to grow corals but I've seen corals grow fine with it

It looks like it could handle some softies, but I would say not as much in a 10g. On a 5 this light would be more suited for coral is my guess.

I may be wrong though! Hopefully someone with experience with this light will chime in.

I've seen this light do well with most softies. It's a 10g cube so the spread covers the whole tank. I just don't know to much about corals. I'm very experienced in planted freshwater and it's very similar I just don't know the individual corals and how they interact with each other. I've heard they will fight each other and stuff. I just want a list of good hardy corals.
