Purple/Blue brain coral

This is a not so common brain coral. Most of them are green brown light colored. You can find some of these it's picture hard to find places and they are a good addition to the tank.

This is a hammer coral. It is another LPS coral. It is a very beautiful coral and as you can see other fish love to live inside its branches. Another good addition to the saltwater tank.

I'm just trying to throw some corals out there for people to consider. These are corals that I've had myself and they propagate pretty quickly for a pretty tank

This is a frogspawn coral. It belongs to the LPS classification. As you can see it's a very beautiful coral and propagates in the tank pretty quickly.

This is a torch coral. This is another coral that does well in the tank but you must make sure that there's not too much trauma to the coral itself from the waves crashing.
