Beginner Reef

Hey all, I am planning on adding my first SPS, LPS, or Anemone to my former FOWLR. What would be a good starting specimen, I thought about a BTA or possibly frogspawn. any thoughts or suggestions.

I'm not familiar with your tank, and your My Tanks Info doesn't have much info.

What's your lighting like on your tank? How much flow do you have? These things will affect what type of corals you can keep.

Frogspawn or a bubble coral would be a good starter.
