I saw some seaweed food there too, so I can easily get that. I posted some of my coral list already, the rest will be posted in a couple days. There's only one or two more. Am I fully stocked for now with corals, or could I get a couple more?

You can go pretty crazy with coral if you wanted. You would just have to worry about fast growing corals that can overrun others. With your list I'd say your ok to add some more. Just be careful with any that send out sweepers at night. I had a frogspwan fall over at night and land on a mushroom. The mushroom almost died by morning when I noticed but I pulled it off on time. It bounced back and is still alive.

Okay. I will make a list of possible corals and post them for your input.

Okay, so looking at the liveaquaria website, these are what I found:
Lavender Mushroom (one I had already been planning on but couldn't remember)
Bullseye Mushroom
Brain Coral, Trachyphyllia

I'll find more tomorrow, too.

Yeah your mushrooms would be great in there. They spread and look great in any tank. They don't spread as fast as zoas IME. And your brain coral from what I've heard isn't aggressive and is stationary. Good choices so far

Are there any coral types that I should stay away from as a beginner? I did find a colony polyp on liveaquaria that I liked. I know it was a zoa though, so how would I keep it from spreading too much?

And what about a Kenya Tree Coral? I know that is one that I would have to feed. How often would I need to though?

It all depends on the lighting you'll have. If you don't have something along the lines of T5's, Metal Halides or LEDs, you may be limited to softies. As for the zoas, even with an angry blenny picking off zoas growing over his home, they're still spreading in my tank. If you wanted to control it you could cut a part of the colony off. Other than that I don't know a good way to control growth.
