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.


Salinity 1.024-6; alkalinity 8.3-9.3 on KH scale; calcium 420; magnesium 1300, temp 78-80, nitrate .2. Ammonia 0. No filters: lps tank. Alk and cal won't rise if mg is low.

Current Tank Info: 105g AquaVim wedge, chromis, royal gramma basslet, tailspot blenny, ocellaris clown, yellow watchman, chestnut turbo snails, bristleworms, couple of hermits.
