New Coral Suggestions

So I am looking for some new coral for my tank after I stupidly nuked a bunch. I have my heart set on a few- orange torch, blueberry gorgonian, sun coral, red monti cap, and I will likely try to replace my rainbow monti. I am looking for suggestions on some nice types of coral (specifically SPS) but am open to all coral ideas. I do want to get various colors and limit the greens. So lets see what you can come up with.

Get a pocillipora. I have 2 in my tank, green and pink/green. Great growth.
That and a Marshall island latana, yellow with blue polyps, very fast growth. Just have to watch your phosphates as it'll brown.
There is a pink stylopora as well that Ora put out about a year ago. Under real high lighting it is light pink but when not under direct gets more maroon, which I prefer.
A red planet acro also needs to be on your list, large red color with light green base when shading gets involved.

Nice suggestions, I especially like the latana and red planet acro. They are both awesome.

I posted a thread on a local forum and was contacted by a guy who has some really nice stuff. A forest fire monti is one of the items I'm getting off him. Along with a tri colored sps, strawberry shortcake, along with some milliporas staghorn and purple digi.

There are many different colors and types of brain coral that might appeal to your taste.

Well I have a favia that survived the apocalypse, bright green one. I think I am going to try to build up my sps and only add an orange torch for LPS. Once things start growing in again I may add more LPS and softies. Sps is so much more peaceful, don't have to worry about stinging as much.
