Best Beginner Coral

I have been debating what my first coral should be. I have narrowed it down to a few types. Please give advise on what my first should be. 90 gallon tank, metal halides, 175 watt 14,000k.

1. GSPs
2. Zoanthids
3. Mushrooms

The tank has been running for that long and it will be a while before I get the corals. Thanks!

I vote all three. they are all easy to care for fast growing corals.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yellow Fiji leather. This one has endured all my mistakes and tripled in size.

I might get a couple frags today since I'm going to LFS for more food + I haven't seen the store in ages. Since before Irene. I think they had a generator, I hope...

Got some Eagle Eye Zoanthids for $20 and a big colony of GSPs that aren't really coming out for $40. I felt kinda sorry for them since they lost 2/3 coral during the power outage
