Low light Corals

Since my girlfriend talked me out of upgrading my lighting fixture (figures)
I am just thinking about what low-light corals I can keep at this time 192W PC on a 46g tank. 4.17WPG Power Compact

This is what I know

All polyps and mushrooms
Frogspawn and Hammer corals
Some Brain Corals
xenia
Ricordea
Candy Cane Coral
Trumpet Coral
Tree Coral
Cabbage leather coral
Fiji leather (All leather corals maybe??)
plate corals
Bubble corals
Tube Coral
Feather duster


Is this correct and what am I forgetting

How about a trip to my neck of the woods? I've got some zoa's (and MANY Kenya Tree starts) that I'd like to get rid of.

All of the corals you have listed along with many others will survive in lower light tanks. Most all of the corals you have listed would benefit form higher light. I have most of the corals you listed in both high and lower light.

Those look OK Figiwigi. Some more to add would be a colt coral, Pagoda cup coral, Pavona coral and even a Squamosa clam.
