new coral tank

I have a 2.5 gallon tank sitting around doing nothing so I was thinking about turning it into a coral tank. First question...can you have a coral only tank or do you need fish to help with nutrients for the coral ? second question...do have to cycle a coral tank like you would a fish only set up? And last...would an HOB filter be enough water movement in the tank. Seems a power head would be way to big for such a small tank
