They all look like good choices given the lighting. Just a couple things to take into consideration:

-the xenia and GSPs can spread like weeds so keep a close eye on those
-make sure the gorgonian is of the photosynthetic variety, and i would probably avoid briareum (again due to its tendency to overgrow anything in its path)
-if the plate coral is Fungia sp. excellent choice, if its Heliofungia its going to get way to big (i'm already running out of room for mine )
-a frag of torch or frogspawn would look great!
-can't go wrong with zoanthids or ricordea...my favorites after acropora

what are you using for circulation in this tank?

Sounds good! I had a mini bow I was planning on setting up as a nano, until I decided to knock it off the table while painting the back

OO That sounds bad. I want the xenia mainly to have something to frag out. I am in a frag trade group and need a good medium

dustin- If you want xenia, try and get the pom-pom type instead of elongata, much prettier and less evasive IMO (email me and ill hook ya up)

Ok, thanks man. I was really wondering if the stuff you had was pom pom or not. I would love to get some frags.
