Is the light that come with this tank good enough to grow some easy corals? Are the blue LEDs enough to make the corals colors more fluorescent or will they be a dull colored? Is the filter that it come with enough 2 support a pistol shrimp goby pair? Or is there another small tank kit that is some what cheap, around $60 - $80, and will grow corals?

I don't think the lights have enough power or proper spectrum to grow much in the coral department,you might be able to have some softies high in the water column.You could be able to mod the lighting.
I just took down my aqueon 13g widescreen tank cus it was really dull and just all in all not worth it. It was a freshwater tank. But i decided that im going 2 make that the reef. I just also picked up the 24in coralife dual fixture T5 ho. It has the actinic and a 10,000k bulb. Thats 48watts of light on a 13g tank, so 3.5 wpg. I also plan 2 use 2 aqueon quite flow 10s and a powerhead. Will that be enough flow? Will the light be enough? Also any stocking suggestions? Posted via Mobile Device
The dimensions r 24(long)× 16(height)× 8(width). It has the same surface area as a 10 but it is higher and longer than a typical 10. But its not that wide which will make it a little hard to do the rock work. Also on amazon this light had terrible reviews but on all the other websites they were good reviews. So could of amazon of been selling just bad product or will that happen to this 1 to? Posted via Mobile Device
I have a coralife duel T-5 HO fixture but I believe it is a 36 inch. It worked great for a couple years,grew alot of corals,but after that one of the channels died. I fixed it with a spare ballast as it was past its warranty.
