I have a candy cane coral. It's an LPS. Seems pretty simple and is doing well.

Montis are the best SPS beginner coral. If it doesn't do good in your tank, then might want to not get any other sps unless you want to try again. If you want the curling effect, put it in fairly high flow. Oh and LPS grow more when fed, like mysis shrimp, etc. but it's not necessary.

Clown gobies may kill acropora. They lay their eggs on them. I'd just be cautious putting the 2 together.
