What are your favorite softies?

i have 2 65w 10,000 k power compacts and 2 65w atinic power compacts and two 20 w NO flouresence. I have a 90 gallon tank and softies are the only corals i can seem to sustain with my lighting. i want to compose a coral wish list but i need some ideas.

Just a beginner but that seems like pretty low light.

I would think you can keep shroons, zoos, Colt, sinularia just for starters.. Some corals may need to be placed high in the tank and others can go low..
I just picked up a light with the same bulbs for my 55 fowlr/frag tank and its bleaching my Kenya trees that are up high..
I also have some shroons in there that are doing well..

I think you could. If you look at the list seaham gave you it`s about everything I have in my tank. As you notice I dont have any High light corals in my tank. Anything that needs MH. Those that need the most light I keep at the top. Maybe one day I will go with MH , But I`m satisfied with what I have right now. When I`m ready for the big time I`ll get in touch with Brenden.
