What are the best corals to buy???

I am now in my 2nd month of my Saltwater Biocube 29 Gallon Tank. I have live rock, live sand, tank is cycled, water levels are good, did my first water change and have 2 blue damsels with yellow tails.

What is the best coral to get? Right now have 2 LUNAR LEDS 1 WHITE LED and Blue Fluorecent and White Flurocent.

you might be able to get some mushrooms, but we really need to know the wattage of those leds, and probably the make.

1-36-Watt Actinic Blue Straight Pin
1-36 Watt 10,000K Daylight Straight Pin
1-.75 Watt Lunar Blue LED Bar

I am assuming the 2 additional LED (1 Lunar and 1 Cool White) are the same Wattage, cannot find where it would say.

Can someone help me with corals? I bought some soft corals that the LFS recommended that are hardy and best for beginners, but want to make sure lighting is adequate.

What kind of corals did you buy? And what was the brand on your leds? I'm doubtful they're strong enough, unless you have a kessil or the like

Ignore the LEDs, they are nothing. Leaves you with a 2 bulb light. Maybe LPS corals and mushrooms. But u wouldn't buy any more till you see how the ones you've already got do
