Coral questions?

Just wondering being a NEWB and all ... what type of corals could you have if you were running NO bulbs?

I have done some research and found a few sites that say corals like mushrooms do well under NO lighting, but really those were the only ones!

I dont' plan on getting anything other than fish and LR right now, but it would be nice to know!


God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

Your options are pretty limited with NO lighting. Some shrooms and brown polyps, nothing with any color will do well. You can also look at non-light dependant corals like the orange cup coral. It needs to be target feed three times a week becuase it does not require light for food/energy.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
