is it the coralife T5-High Output duel bulb unit?Also what is the tank size?if its not to wide and not too deep then you can keep alot of kinds of corals in the tank.Many type of soft corals ,LPS,Chalices,ecrusting corals.Tostart off the easy corals that come to mind,or beginner corals, are green star polyps,blue clove polyps,many types of zoanthids and palythoas,mushrooms,leather corals,kenya tree corals,ect.When your perameters are stable I will giv e you some coral to start off with so feel free to drop me a line to get some starter cuts.

I agree with badx,I just wanted to add that Caulastrea(candy canes)would be a good choice as well.They were one of the first corals I was sucessful with.

One of my beginner corals was a Duncan. They grow like weeds and are pretty. I don't know if they are technically a beginner coral, but if I didn't kill it then I'm sure you won't Laughing
