LPS stands for Large Polyp Stony Coral. It means that it's skeleton is like a rock and the polyps are really big. SPS is Small Polyp Stony coral. It's skeleton is stony but it has really tiny polyps. Softies have no skeletons.

Ok so I need to order/buy instant marine salt, one power head, a refractometer, live sand, live rock, RO water, raw unseasoned table shrimp, panty hose, lighting, and test kit. Is there anything I'm missing besides the coral?

Oh ya thats right! what kimd of lighting do i need again? And how long should I leave the shrimp and panty hose? Should the power head be on when I cycle the tank? Can I use a filter I already have in addition to using the live rock as a filter? How long does it take to fully cycle the tank?

You leave the powerhead on. And you can use the filter. Just run chemipure and some filter floss (quilt batting. Super cheap at the local walmart). It usually takes about a month to cycle a tank. A little less with live rock. And I'm not sure about lighting. Maybe someone else can help with that.

I'm not sure what kind of budget your on but honestly you might as well just get an all-in-one kit. I have a 14 gallon biocube. Has everything you need besides a heater and a power head. The lighting supports most coral besides sps and it's a great starter tank

If it were me, I would go with a finnex ray 2. They come in 18" and 24" models so I'd go with the 24. It's a quality light that will let you grow anything.

The biocube isn't a terrible idea, but the quality of their lighting is usually quite sub par when compared with other brands.

I don't think too sub-par. I have some birdsnest in there and it's doing really well!

Can the cleaner shrimp be kept without fish? And can they tolerate the light that you recommended?

They do the same thing that everything else does when it dies... lay around not moving.
