[Coral-List] tank experiments with corals

as part of my master thesis on Reunion Island, I want to carry out tank
experiments with corals under high temperature and light stress
Facilities here are rather basic, so I'm seeking your advice on
maintaining corals for 1-2 month with low budget equipment.
I'm facing the following problems:
There is an opportunity to work with tanks supplied with running
seawater, but we can't afford the right equipment to heat up the water
in an open system. We have thought about working in closed systems
instead, but this doesn't seem trivial either. Another problem is an
artificial light source, which again needs to be cheap yet spectrally
close to natural sunlight.
I would welcome any advice from people who have some experience with
maintaining corals, especially concerning equipments and ways to keep
Thanks a lot in advance.
