Well you are kind of limited with a 9 gallon as far as stocking options.. Soon, I want to get a pico tank and make it into a zoa garden with just a shrimp and maybe a green clown goby =) Unless you get rid of the damsels, I wouldn't get any other fish though.

Looks good though how you have it set up! When you get the 20 started though, stay away from damsels!

El Fab's Pico Reef - YouTube

Hope that link works.. I came across this video on youtube a few weeks ago and thought it was pretty awesome.. Its a 3 gallon pico that this guy had and did an outstanding job with.. While I don't agree with all the choices of fish he had in it, he had some very neat corals in it and I thought maybe you could get some ideas from it! He has a galaxy coral in the tank which would give you some nice flow, just be carful.. They have some long sweeper tentacles.

Star Polyps and xenia give a lot of nice movement also, but you will have to keep them in check because they can grow very quickly.

Is the galaxy coral related to a torch? They look similar except the torch isn't in a ball

Mmm just did a little looking up on google and it looks like they are not in the Samuel family, aside from both being LPS. Good question though.

I personally always thought they looked kind of like green star polyps just meatier

Lol yes! Start it up! I've had my 55 for a little over a year and I am constantly on Craigslist looking for a bigger tank!

Food for thought, the video I linked was a 3 gallon and he had a galaxea coral in.. You have 6 more gallons on him.. If course, who knows, maybe he had all kinds if problems with it
