    What Corals will do well under the lights in a Boyu TL-450?
    My tank is just under a year old and I would like to add some more coral to my tank.

    Not very strong lights but I reckon you should be able to keep a few different softies and some LPS corals. From what I have seen in other similar tanks you could try these:

    Mushrooms
    Zoanthids
    Ricordea's
    Kenya Tree
    frogspawn
    hammer
    torch.

    I think most of those should be ok.

    Viper is correct. Also to increase light penetration. Run carbon to help polish the water.

    The tank is only about 60 Litres.
    Are any of those corals too big or aggressive to keep in a tank that small?
