46 gal corner reef

Have a 46 gal corner tank an my bf wants it to be a reef. The tank is not drilled im not sure what kind of glass it Is made out of. I'm not really into reef tanks so looking for suggestions on equipment and livestock. The stand is small and would probably only be able to fit a 10 gallon sump. I know that I don't like sps corals, I like the look of lps. Any help is much appreciated thank u.

Is this a good skimmer for the type of tank it will be?

Guess no one has any ideas. If it helps my center piece coral is going to be the black tube coral. I am still researching it I would like some red, red/orange, blue, purple or green colored coral to put with it if possible.

For livestock I would look at a firefish, cardinals, clown fish, royal gramma, or a reef safe wrasse. Those all do well in reefs and are pretty hardy imo.

Thanks for the replies. I have 3 clownfish in another tank I was thinking of putting in there. Do u think if I split them up the two that I keep together would continue to breed without the third one?

I've been looking up different lps and I definitely don't like ones that look like rugs or flat ones. I like the flowing ones.

I have two of those eshopps skimmers and really like them.

I wouldnt put 3 clowns in the same tank, too much risk of it going bad. :-(

otherwise the list looks good I think. For flowy corals look at frogspawn, torches and hammer corals. They blow in the flow really nicely.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
