very. if you get to to start you cant stop them. great money maker selling frags to the lfs. just start them on the top of the rock work because they love tons of light.

Yep, the heads will open and close repeatedly.. looks pretty cool.

You might also want to try some zoos or maybe a leather.

I would go for the xenia. It was one of my first corals. They can be difficult to aclimate but are generally very hardy. These are still one of those "mystery" corals. Some colonies do great while others wither and die for no apparent reason. Oncce it is going in your tank it will take off like crazy.
