Softies with Stonies, who likes who?

I have primarily an SPS/LPS tank excluding a small mat of star and daisy polyps, few shrooms. I have nine species of mixed LPS and SPS and would like to add in a couple of softies if possible, however I want to avoid chemical warfare. Anyone have suggestions of good soft corals to put with my stonies? Thanks

Can't do it, all softies are capable of and will engage in chemical warfare. Many stony corals and anemones also engage in chemical warfare. The noxious chemicals are easily removed through the use of activated carbon.

So if I am running AC 24/7 and changing every week I should be okay?

Any soft species better to avoid regardless?

Leathers in general have the most noxious chemicals, but if your running GAC and keep them down stream, it shouldn't be a problem.
