Zoanthid and scolymia are great coral options for starters

acropora was one of my first corals, as long as you have the right lighting and flow. +1 on Zoanthinds/Palys and Mushrroms/Ricordea. Pretty much anything in the softies category and some LPS. SPS are supposedly the hardest to keep and I only have an acropora colony that falls into SPS so my advice on SPS is limited

xenia, green star polyps, all the leathers, mushrooms, and zoanthids are all pretty forgiving.
