Thinking about getting sps before getting a clam.

I have a 55g with 2 eBay LEDs, 2 power heads and a hob protein skimmer for water flow my tank is about 8-9 months old. I was wondering what sps are easy to take care of and what I need to do to take care of them.

Montipora is easy. Digi, caps, encrusting. Seriatophora (birdsnest) is also easy. They need no special care other than weekly water changes to replenish trace elements and keep the water clean. You have plenty of light.

Pocillipora. Great color and easy to care for. Birds nest is great, but turning into a weed in my tank!
