Reef Frags

What reef frag can I put in a 10g aquarium? I was looking into good colors and fair price.

Yes it would be very helpful to state exactly what lights you have?

Reef Frags

No corals can survive under that lighting. Look into t5 fixtures or quality leds like a par38 bulb

I can't grow low light plants under that fixture in fw. I doubt it can support any marine photosynthetic life
