Look at my tank which coral would you add?

I am lost really on what coral I should add to my display. I don't want to just throw anyting into my tank. If you got a minute please take a look at my tank and offer any advice you may have.I would really appreciate any comments

I think some blue or red mushrooms would look great drapped across/down the rock on the far left.
Is there anything in particular you have in mind? Like, something that hugs the rocks or something that sprouts up? I think a cabbage leather would like nice too.
Or did you want more lps? Maybe a bubble coral? Your choices are many. lol

I am not really sure. I like the sprouts up idea, I will take a look at a cabbage leather. I had a hard time with mushrooms I couldn't get them to attach to my rocks or spread. I only had a few which I no longer have. they floated away and died.

I want lots of color and interesting things. I was thinking about some pulsating xenia. and also considering another ricordea, I want to get something to have as a main attraction down on the bottom of the tank. I will have upgraded lighting next month probably (x-mas) so will be adding some SPS maybe?

I wouldn't give up the mushrooms. I just think they are lovely when they grow down and across the sandbed. As for xenia, yeah it's pretty but it's a weed to and can get out of hand so be mindful of where you place it. I'd put it high up. It tends to grow slower if it has to grow downward. Another thing you could try is a tree leather. Leathers grow fast and need a good bit of space so I guess it depends on what your ultimate goal is. Ricordia is always a great addition. If you are planning an upgrade anyway though, I would hold out for some sps.

I just wanted to comment on how nicely you have the rock work set up in your tank. I've been trying forever to get mine set up ..... when are you coming back over my way? I have a job for you! LOL

i also agree on one of the previous posts, ricks are nice, the color variation is great and is a mushroom. leather corals are nice, easy to frag, but shed a slime once in a while which seems to collect in my tank.

if you visit bluegrasscorals.com you can get a great picture of the variety, however there prices are crazy, mom and pop stores seem to sell corals at a nice cheap price which is where i get my corals. but just check out different corals and get a feel for their colors and what you plan to do, would you like a coral to just sit in one spot and look pretty or would you like a coral that will grow and spread?

im going to personally attempt to make something uneaque. i hope no one steals my idea commercially but im going to attempt something , i dont think its been done before but if it works out then im sure it will be a big hit in the aquarium world. ill get back to this in a few months.
