Zoas and Polyps do good in newly cycled tanks.
Test your water and make sure everything is close to 0.

Honestly, I would have gone with the 20W coralife 50/50's because with the 10 watt lights you dont even have 1 watt per gallon. I would recommend no less than the coralife 50/50 in 20watt. The you can keep some zoas, mushrooms, xenia and a few other low light corals.

yea you really dont have enough light to grow mid-high light corals.if you wanna basic test, get a single mushroom polyp. most place sell um super cheap, put it in the bottom of the tank. now if it stretches out really wide and towards the light, you need more light, mushrooms spread out but it shouldnt be stretching and it should be flush with the rock mostly. (think of every picture youve seen of a mushroom) mushrooms are one of the lowest light/almost indestructible corals so it can take some punishment.

as far as easy starter corals, mushrooms and zoa's, most leathers, acans and duncans are pretty hardy too even though they can carry somewhat of a price tag. open brains are fairly easy as well, lobo's trachy's/wellso's but you need proper lighting for all of these corals not alot compared to SPS's and clams and anemone's but a good bit none the less
