what corals need the least amount of lighting?

what are the best corals, for tanks that dont have mh or t-5s?

my light is a 15w or 18w power glo on my 10gallon tank

There is a stony coral---bubble--which likes low light.

Many zoas or mushrooms don't mind low light at all. I had some discosoma neglecta [shrooms] which survived the cycle and grew like crazy once there was light, but they liked to hang in caves.

Sun coral is not photosynthetic, and each polyp has to be fed individually, so it is quite fussy, but lives in underwater overhangs.

Certain sponges are brightly colored and prefer near dark.

There's a whole world of minimal-light corals out there.

That all being said, you'll be much happier with a reef tank that has at least PC or T5 lighting on it.
