Easy corals

I was just curious of what people could recommend for easier corals that don't need too much light? Ones that they like or have found to be good. Looking to add some more corals just don't know what to get.

Green star polyps are great and so are most Zoanthids and pulsing xenias are great starting corals.

Soft corals are a great place to start, like the ones mentioned above. Leathers and palythoas are some other good starters. depending on your parameters, some LPS are relatively easy to care for as well. What is your set up and parameters?

It's a 30 gallon that's been established for a couple of years. The corals I have now are doing just fine. I am running orbit current leds that aren't fantastic but do the job. My parameters are: Ph 8.0
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0

I'm just looking to put something in that has some color to it and is pretty easy to maintain.

Sun corals have great colour and don't require expensive lights as far as I know. They do however need regular feeding. So maybe can't consider them as easy. I am a huge fan of them
