Hey everyone! Haven't been on since ages but it has been 6-7 weeks since my tank has been empty without fish because of the "ick" and I'm getting some new fish this Friday and I was wondering I would like to keep corals in my tank but too confused with all the light thing..I have 2X t5 54w in my 55 gallon and was wondering if anyone could suggest any corals that would live under them?? XD

You would be fine getting some mushrooms or zoas. Most of the "soft" corals have low light requirements.

Mushrooms for sure. Might try some waving hand polyps as they are easy to care for and if they spread, you will know your conditions and lighting are up to snuff. Then try something like a frog spawn. Zoas are also good.
