Creating Movement

So I am getting together a list, fish stock and coral. I am wondering what would do great at creating movement in the tank. I have a tree coral that moves great that will be going in, but what else can I use to create the reel feel of a reef and not just stagnant.

Well my definition of a real reef would be a bunch of sticks (sps corals) lol since they are the main contributors when it actually comes to building the reef. Joking aside how about Xenia, gsp, long polyp toadstool, torch coral, Duncan's.

I like Euphyllia. Frogspawn, Hammer, Torch...they all look beautiful and they do move.

Cool. I will look around. I have 6' to work with so I will be adding quite a few. Gonna place 2 clams on the sand bed, a carpet mid level and corals throughout. I am so ready to go nuts lol!

Just be aware that anemones rarely go where we want them to and carpets are good at eating fish.

Yep...carpets are like those sticky glue mouse traps, plus, they get as big as a trash can lid.

I like Rose Bubble Tips. If they are too pricey, Green Bubble tips are also cool.
