Just curious why you would pass on the blue hippo tang? Is it not reef safe or something?

Also - what corals can I get? Would like stuff thats really colorfull. We are going to Animal Planet tonight to look around at them to get an idea for the future...

I would pass on the hippo for a couple of reasons...first, a 55gal is a bit tight for this tang, they need space. Second, I would not consider adding this fish to a fairly new tank. They are very prone to ick and require extremely stable water parameters.

As for corals...you have lots of choices. I would start with some eaiser-to-keep polys or mushrooms. Aside from that, there are several great LPS corals you could consider. Torch, candy cane, hammers to name a few.
