I am impatient

So I am currently saving up for a new lighting fixture so that I will be able to keep corals. That will probably be a while though like a month or something so in the meantime.......are they're ANY rly low light corals that could live under a single 8000k t5 in a 16" deep tank? like zoas or mushrooms maybe? I think I already know the answer to this but just thought I'd fish for a miracle lol, I can't wait :$ Any success stories?

I am in the same boat as you! I'm waiting for my tax returns which I've read can take anywhere from 3-8months to get back . After reading information on certain types of corals, I figured it would help me in the long run to save the money and frustration now and wait for better lights. I will keep checking back to see if anyone had any success... I'm hoping!

No photosynthetic corals can live in that small amount of light.

you may be ok with sun corals,a type of polyp but you will have to target feed them
