Corals that like lighting and are affordable?

Hi all, most of my corals are placed lower in my tank due to my research of them not liking a lot of light.

I'm running 2 206W metal halides in my 125 gal 24" deep tank.

Here is the list of corals I have so far:

CORALS
1) Hammer Coral
2) Mushroom coral
3) Duncan
4) Toadstool leather
5) Orange Zooanthid
6) Green Star Polyp
7) Red Mushroom
8) Blue Hammer Coral
9) Green Polyp Clove
10) Green Brain Coral
11) Red Colt Coral
12) Frog Spawn Coral
13) Trumpet Coral

There's always Xenia, but they grow like weeds.

I'm not too crazy about xenia =/

Is there a good coral resource you can recommend? I know I'm a noob. I don't understand what any fascination with hard corals would be; to me they seem ugly.

I'm LOVING my corals; I'll have to post some pics as they are opening up nicely.

I am addicted lol want more and more and more.

Check out Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums then. They have some beautiful hard corals as well as LPS ones which I think you'll like.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
