What other LPS? Everyone loves frogspawn/hammer/torch corals. Bubble corals are cool, Acans are also nice. Scolymia, fungia (short tentacle only, NOT long tentacle heliofungia), Duncanopsamma (thought they seem to take a long time to acclimate to the LEDs)...
I'm partial to the Aussie corals like scolymia, Moseleya, and acanthastrea. I love hand feeding them.

Have you tried to move it around again?
I did try moving it again so we will see how it holds up.

I am very partial to the torch and acans. I just want to ease into the more difficult stuff so I don't keep killing things.

I don't think Euphyllia are that hard. Acans are pretty easy also.

Well, the new placement seems to have helped for the time being. I put them way out of the way and even added a rock in front of them to misdirect even more flow. One of the polyps that I thought for sure was a goner looks to be in a slightly better condition now so my fingers are crossed
