    Question what kind of corals?

    I have a 65 gallon with 2" crushed coral substrate,80lbs of live rock,1 yellow tang,1 percula clown,5 damsels,1 pink tip anenome,2 brtittle star fish,1 serpent star fish,1 chocolate star fish,and a coral banded shrimp.
    I will be upgrading to a dual VHO lighting setup,not sure which bulbs yet.
    Question..what kind of low maintance corals can I get away with..without the added expenses of a calcium reactor,metal halide bulbs or any other chemical additives?
    leathers? zoos? any advice would be appreciated.

    When you say "dual VHO setup", do you mean two 110W bulbs? If so, check out this thread part-way down where I list a bunch of corals that I keep with similar lighting:

    In addition, you will have to get rid of the chocolate chip starfish, as they eat corals.

    You will also have to get your calcium up, either by adding bio calcium, B ionic, drip Kalk, or get a calcuim reactor.

    very good chance of 2 110 watt bulbs Zookeeper,your thread didnt seem to work when I clicked on it though....you mentioned Kalk...would that be applied by a constant drip or would it be added ..like a teaspoon/day or what?

    As for the Kalk, best if you start a drip. Personally thouhg, I use Bio Calcium.
