coral advice

Hello,

I have a 192W PC lightstrip with 1 actinic and 1 dayight bulb. I am just in the middle of purchasing the rest of my setup but I am doing advance research into what types of corals I can keep with this lighting. I have a 46G tank so it works out to a little over 4 Watts per gallon. I am thinking of Bubble Coral, Mushroom Coral, Button Polyps, Purple Montipora, Candycane, Brain, Fox, Plate and Torch. Will those all work? Any thoughts on others that are colorful and cool that would work under this lighting? Would acropora live?

These will do well in any part of the tank that gets good light

These will need to be placed towards the top of the tank due to their needs for strong lighting...They should be fine though...

Thanks Timbo,

It should be strong enough lighting for most softies and some LPS's, am I right?

Do not put a plate coral at the top of the tank. They are sand dwelling corals, and will inflate and injure themselves if placed on the rockwork, injury for this coral almost always leads to death.
