If you wanted to get some hardy corals that are easy to maintain, you could easily go to your lfs
and pick up a new bulb that will fit that fixture and will allow you a little more room for growth. Nps, is also another option. I have two sun corals that are nps. They require target feeding several times a week and little to no light. They don't use photosynthesis to feed or produce their food. Most lfs
have nps in stock, they are just as sensitive as other corals as mrc said. You still have to watch your calcium, alk
ph and mag. Plus your other basic stuff too. Liveaquaria has an entire section on them. Check it out...
