The pH is fine as long as it's constant. Some easy to keep corals would be mushrooms/zoos.

PH will be OK if you can keep it stable. Just remember that a reef tank that small that there is no room for error. What did you measure your salinity with?

Ok then it is probably right then. I was going to say that if it was with a hydrometer then it might be higher than that. Good luck on your tank.

no coral and the dkh went down 3 points in a week? If i remember correctly, isnt dkh exponential? Thats a pretty big swing to get with nothing using it up (unless the corraline algae on the LR used it, which I guess is entirely possible in a tank that teensy)

Other than that, looks like your good to go

definetly would start with hardy stuff like 'shrooms and see how they work out.
