low light coral?

i have a regular 29gal reef tank that's been doing well for the last couple months. i'm happy with the overall scape and growth on my corals with the exception to one spot. this area is in the lower region of the tank and not in direct exposure from my quad T5HO (2white 2blue). i would like to know what i can put in this spot other than mushrooms but is still photosynthetic.

Any photosynthetic soft corals would probably hit the ticket here. Mostly polyps and mushrooms.

If you haven't already, you could also squeeze more PAR out of your 4 lamp fixture by using high end lamps. ATI or Giesemann make some really potent lamps, Plus, they will make your tank look a lot better than any stock tubes.
