whats a good coral to cover my back wall

what would be a good moderate-low light coral that would attach to my backwall and eventually spread across it? Ive seen ppl do this with mushrooms but that seems to take too long. I like the look though

Green star polyps, definitely the coral to do it with if any.

A nice flowing green carpet on the back wall sounds awesome to me

+1 for GSP's. They will spread like wild fire if conditions are correct.

That sounds awesome. How would u get them to stick to the wall? Would u attach it straight to the back wall or on a rock near the wall and hope it spreads?

I'd just glue a frag of GSP to the back and let it grow

You can also place the initial frag or colony at the rear pane so that it is in contact with the glass, if that is possible. It will enrust all on its own in time.

Xenia grows on there fast. I'm working on putting some plate coral on my overflow boxes.
