Mrx has lots of personal experience he just made it easier by sending you the link. Mushrooms and zoas are good starters.

I've kept every single coral on the website at one time or another. You are safe with anything in the "beginner corals" section.

Im very new to the hobby myself but one thing I can add is it depends on your lights. I upgraded to a 4 bulb t5 fixture and I have zoas, mushrooms, star polyps, finger leather, frogspawn, and Kenya trees and they are all doing great. I dont run a skimmer and they do fine, but I do 25% water changes weekly.

Ricordias, crown leather, sacrophyton. All of these are fine beginner corals.

What's cool about ricordias is that I started with 2 and now have 11 (in like 4 months!) easy care and they seem to multiply like mad
