I would start with a few soft corals..(xenia, leather..etc) See how that goes and then move your way up to LPS (trumpet, brain...etc) After that, if you think you're ready, research anemones that will be ok in 4 wpg, and go from there.

great suggestions. Start with some mushrooms and zoos. Move into some LPS corals. A nice BTA down the road...

I would skip the softies and go right for LPS. Frogspawn, trumpet, open brain, lobo, favia ... Xenia is like the weed of the industry, moves wherever it wants to, etc. A nice leather or two would be ok. I've never been a big fan of zoos, but really love a nice shroom.

Depends on the coral. I would suggest a copy of Eric Borneman's Aquarium Corals for complete captive care info.
