Pulsing xenia and green star polyps are just about indestructable, but If it was me I'd grab some zoanthid and ricordea.

My first two were a green zoanthid and purple mushroom. I have managed to avoid killing both of them as well Both are a great starter coral, But I believe I prefer my pulsing xenia more since they add some movement to the tank.

first frags I got were trumpet coral and a paly frag. They both weathered some pretty harsh conditions but they are still going and doing great now! Be careful if you go the xenia route, as you will probably have it in your tank forever!

Thanks for all the replies!!! I have LEDs. The guy at the store said that I can keep almost anything.
Could I get a torch for my clowns to host?

Torches are awesome! That was one of my first. Torches, frogspawn or hammers would be fine and they have nice movement in the water. Maybe later on a clam.
