If you want a coral to feed look into sun coral (Tubastrea). They don't need light so you have to feed them. They are really beautiful coral though and look incredible when they open up.

If you feed enough to keep a sun coral alive in a 14 gallon you will pollute the water in no time. Less feeding means higher water quality. If you really want something extra go for something like an LPS that you could hand feed (don't broadcast feed the whole tank). I fed pellets right to my frogspawn, acans, and Symphyllia. Many mushrooms will take them too.

it's got a mouth in the center of each head. any LPS should work for you. bubble coral, acans, favia, euphyllia (torch, hammer, frogspawn), tracyphyllia, duncans, candycanes, chalices, lobophyllia....you have many choices.

My frogspawn was one of my favorites in the tank, and grew very well.

duncans are really cool too. i also like dendrophyllia. beautiful and barely need any light. check out "pearl bubble" coral. these are very cool.
