Softies are your leathery corals and normally require little light.
, large polyp stony, are your next step up and need medium light. They have a calcium skeleton and many expand themselves with water.
Then there are SPS
, small polyp stony, and require high intensity light. They are basically a colored skeleton.
That is a very, very basic explaination...but you can go from there.
