What corals can I have?

I have a single, 15 watt T8 bulb over a standard 10 gallon tank.


Right now I have a frag of purple death palys, some other random palys, and GSP and they're doing great.

Can I keep any zoas or anything else?

i would not look for non photo corals like a chili coral either. they are not easy to keep, and need a lot of food in the water column- something you do not want to attempt in a 10 gallon.
