Any small LPS corals without sweepers?

I love the looks of LPS corals, but I have a small tank packed with sorfties...mostly zoos, star polyps, goronian, and some xenia....I have a small SPS frag that is doing very well, and I would love to add a small LPS to my tank.

What are the possabilitys?

Candy Cane and Trumpet Corals would be a good choice, they have short sweepers, so only a little bit of room around them is required. Blastomussa would be another good choice, to the best of my knowledge, although it's a bit on the expensive side.

You could go with an alveopora. I love mine. If you would be okay with short sweepers you'd have a lot more luck. Brains have pretty short sweepers also.

Don't Bubble Corals and Frogspawn have long sweepers?

I think I am going to try a candy cane and save the brain for the new 37 gal.

How many inches in diameter should I leave around a candy cane lest say two inches tall with three polyps?

'Bout 3 inches or so should be fine.

Awsome......how can I tell if he is stinging something, will it just die or is it best to scope out the tank under moon lights? Can you see the sweepers?
