Frogspawns are a good one I start with. Grow fast and fun to look at.

Ducan is nice and doesn't need much light, most zoas grow slowly for me but my friends tank that is a whole other story. It might just depend on your tank.

I keep my zooa's either mid tank or on the sandbed.
they can release toxins but it will not just die one day and nuke your tank, don't worry about that.

I agree frogspawn is great, mine grows like weeds. Ricordia & kenya tree do well with low light too.

I like the flowy corals too. lol I have a hammer, torch and a frogspawn. All are fast growers and really eye catching.

I would stay away from kenya trees they grow way to fast and seem to lose a lot of branches and start getting out of control.

The donut coral is really nice and fits everything you're looking for sharklover, and it's really hardy too. Didn't think of it earlier.

Ya, the kenya does tend to want to take over.

O.o if you like the flowy ones too wait till you see this purple torch I'm getting tomorrow! Gonna post a pic when it opens all up.
