Coral information sites and species lists?

Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone knows some great links for coral species and coral care information. I am most interested in soft corals and maybe some sps. Are there any good web links anyone has?

Also, which books would be the best for species care and looking at difficulties. I have several books but none say too much about how hard things are to keep. All the books I've read are too general for saltwater and talk about all the equipment and cyanide poisioning, etc, and then don't go into detail on coral care.

I would like to find the easiest species that are compatible with my reef so far (my signature lists what I have) and watch for them at the lfs. I hate buying something cause it looks cool and then finidng out it won't do well in my tank!

Also, if you have any suggested species for my tank, I'd love to hear it and those will liekly be the species I keep an eye out for!

Here my current setup:




Equipment: 33G SW Reef tank (pic), 192W Coralife PC lighting, PHs for H2O circulation, Red Sea Berlin Classic Skimmer
Aquascaping: 3" DSB, 50lb live rock (~35 lbs home made Cement Base Rock)
Clean Up Crew: Blue Leg hermits, Cerith snails, Astrea Snails, Stomatella snails, Brittlestar, banded brittles.
Critters: Hawaiian feather duster, Coral Banded Shrimp, Emerald Crab
Corals: Open Brain Coral, Cabbage coral, 4 RBTAs, Melon mushrooms, green Zoos, yellow polyps, finger Leather, orange Zoos, Brown Zoos, Chocolate Zoos, Xenia, GSP, Kenya Tree Coral, 2 acropora SPS, blue sponge, candy cane
Fish/Inverts: Maroon Clownfish, Scooter Blenny, Coral Beauty dwarf angel, Sea Hare
