There are a very few corals that require no light. Sun corals and carnation corals are two I've been able to find on google. I don't think you will be able to find much in the 1 1/2 wpg range. Maybe you could get another set to make it 160 total watts which would be a little better. Maybe then you could have shrooms, polyps and maybe zoa's. You can forget the anemone's though. I'm pretty sure none of those could survive that lighting(except maybe aiptasia and oh that's bad).
I know lighting can get expensive but 4 foot shop lights are only 10$ at walmart and you can get another 80 watts of good bulbs for that and then you can save up for the decent ones. That's what we did.
Good luck! Kat
