I think I might just hold off for a while on the light and wait until I can upgrade to a larger tank... in the meantime I will just try to find something for my fish to host

Any mushrooms are a great first coral. They're hardy and don't require a lot of light! Same with ricordea's. Chili coral and candy cane coral are also really great options.

I would say and this is just my honest opinion ..........start your smaller tank as a reef cuz face it u will want to upgrade and when u do and its a 125 or above do fowler. Just chose fish that are reef safe so when tour ready to take the plungevans spend a grand you can migrate every thing over.
