Hi everyone, im thinking of getting a River Reef soon and was trying to find out
what types of coral would be good in a small tank and under compact T5's.

Would be grateful if anyone could help.

Cheers Joey

Agree with Ben on the stocking ,As its a smallish tank i would go for small corals or frags of and watch then grow as this will give you a better diversity of corals in the system

Be good to see some pics m8

Thanks for the advice, I won't be getting the tank for a couple of weeks, as I'm doing up my house and the money has to go on that first, and as for the pics, I will be posting from the start of the setup.
