Good starter SPS

I think I am ready now with my larger tank and LED lighting to try SPS...only question is what is the best one to start with?

I know birdsnest are suppose to be really easy to start and grow but what else?

Im not a fan of plate corals like Montipora Capricornis or cup coral. I want something that will branch out nicely but is easier to keep as I don't know that I will even enjoy SPS that much.

Suggestions please

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem!

A lot of encrusting montis are good but acros that are yellow in color are good water quality indicators as far as acros go. There are also montipora didgitata that is branching
