I would say most mushrooms and GSP make good starters and do not require as much light (3+wpg). Also Kenya trees seems to grow prolifically in my tank. Many button polyps do well also.

HTH,

Colt corals and leathers are good starters. What type of lighting are you getting?

well i was looking at these compact fluorescent lights that i can get either in a single 96 watt (making it about 3.3 wpg) or the dual 96 watt (making it 6.6 wpg). I would rather get the single because its half as expensive, but i dont want to shoot myself later down the line for not getting the better one.

but as far as how hard the are to take care of, what seems to be the least maintanence coral?

I would say that all those mentioned in this thread would be OK.
