And now I'm wondering if I could add my first coral ... And if I could what would be the easiest and best coral to start with . I'm looking for somthing relatively cheap, and easy to care for since it would be my first coral !

I think you're fine to add some zoas. They are always a good first coral and most of the common morphs are pretty cheap

One more thing . How do you get rid of this algae on the glass ? It's green and in little dots . I have an acrylic magnet algae scrubber that gets rid of all the other algae . I have tried scrubbing with my fingers and it won't go ... Click image for larger version

Pretty sure the biocube is glass. I know my 14 is. People often use credit cards to scrape Coraline algae off of acrylic and razor blade or equivalent off of glass.

They are definitely glass. From drs foster smith " Curved glass front affords clear, panoramic aquarium views for complete aquarium enjoyment."
