Downgrading 33 gal to 15 - lighting concern.

I need to down-size my 33 gallon aquarium to a 15 gal. (Nano?) due to lack of space ... anyway i know this will be more difficult to keep, however i have had my current 33g running for over a year now with good water, coral growth, etc. no probs so i think i'll be okay, my only concern is this:

I am planning on keeping coral in the 15 gallon and I am currently using a single 150w MH - will this be too intense for my new tank? (24wx12dx12h) and if not will I be able to keep any hard corals under it?

I don't see why the MH wouldn't work. If you're worry about heat just raise it higher for the 15 gal tank.
