Ok. Sorry that I misunderstood. I think your best bet to start off (when you're ready to) might be a small frag of zoas. They seem to like fairly low light conditions and are fairly easy IMO. Plus there are so many colors available that I'm sure you could find something that appealed to you. They also do well (as do most other softies) in less than pristine conditions where SPS thrive. Check out www.zoaid.com.

OK then you guys say it already has PC lighting? If so you`ll be OK with a hammer or frogspawn. I didnt know.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

I agree with hn1 zoanthids are a very easy coral and given the right or almost right water conditions will spread like mad they were my first coral (green colony) and i have loved them ever since helps with adding more color to the tank as they come in almost every color you can name ( also you might be good with a toadstool leather coral let others give a opinion on this one)
special thanks to melosu58 , roka , thincat,CaptainAhab (and many more who i will list later as i find thier names so i can spell them lol ) for i would not have the tank or the knowledge i have about my tank if not for them.

long as your tnak is ready and if you already have the PC, then zoas,mushrooms, maybe a finger leather, they are fairly easy and low likght acceptable, I have 130 wat Pwr cmpt and I have zoas, shrooms, finger leather, a lobo brain, an open brain, a frogspawn, trumpet, encrusting montipora, a Hydnopora and a budy gave a staghorn frag just ot see how pwr cmpt wrk, Its at the top of my tnak and so far in the past 3 months it has been in the tank it has trippled in size and is seems to be doing very well....it is about 8 inches from the lights though...do a google search for low light corals, you will get a pretty good list, sun polyps are very pretty but you have to feed them, they arent photosynthetic so the light really doesnt matter for them

I;m so deep that if water tried to listen then the rivers would sink...knowledge is power, get ya weight up!
