I only have 60 watts of NO fluros.. that's for a 55G tank, which has 45KG of rock in there (in other words, not truely 55G of water volume)..

I do have come corilamorphs which seem to be doing fine but are there any corals I could add? Anything at all??

Some lowlight corals that you could have are orange sun polyps. They are low light and moderate care corals. The only problem is they have to be target fed. Here are mine

What do you target feed them with? I currently target feed some of my inverts (button pollops apparently) with mysis and other shreded solids like that. Do sun corals take that too? I've read they live in caves also so would that mean I should place it under a ledge in the tank or in light is OK given how low WPG I have?

Yes they do live in caves and I have mine under a ledge. I feed mine brine and mysis with a turkey baster

Pulsing Xenia is another one that is easy to grow in low light.

Really?? Those are awesome corals!! What is a recommended WPG for them? I guess I'd need to keep these closer to the surface?
