Questions about adequate lighting

I am currently cycling a 45 gallon soon to be reef tank. I'm going to install a 6 bulb T5 36 in light fixture. What kind of corals will not only survive, but thrive in my tank. Any help would be appreciated.

With 6 bulbs over a 45 gallon, you could keep anything you wanted as long as the more light demanding corals were in the top third of your tank. But basically, it'll be mostly LPS corals that you'd want to keep with that light.
