Easy corals

Hey guys- just wanting to know what were some easy corals to have in a reef tank? I've already got some zoas but other than that it's an empty tank. Just trying to add some color!

I'm not quite sure about the light. What wattage leds and how many? If they are fully reef capable for sps and lps I would say get a few hardy sps like some acros and some lps like favias and acans. If you need low light corals pulsing xenia, yellow polyps, and clove polyps are great but will spread pretty quickly.

It's a 32 led 26 white and 6 blue, it's made for corals. I will look into lps and sps corals. Hopefully my tank will be big enough.

Size really isn't an issue just the smaller the tank the more precious every piece and realestate becomes lol

I love LPS, especially hammes, frogspawn, and torch corals. I also LOVE palythoas, Zoas, Duncans, and montiporas.
