While you're waiting for that tank to mature bit more, get Eric Borneman's Corals book. It'll help you a lot in deciding on whether you've got the right lighting, flow, or time to feed (some need direct feeding).

When you begin, keep mushrooms, leathers, star polyps, & zoos in mind. Frogspawn, hammer are some of my favorite easy ones. But get a book a read up, otherwise you may may kill a few. Try a feather duster too (not coral, but a nice addition IMO.
