    If your water stays stable. Softies (zoas, palys, mushrooms, ricordea, etc...) would be great starters and if you have good enough water quality and good lighting, then you could do some large polyp stony (LPS)(frogspawn, bubble, hammer, torch, elegance, brains, favias, etc...)

    All of the ones that kbuser named are good ones. Your tank could be ready for corals when it is finished cycling. In my opinion, many of the easy corals are easier to take care of than fish!

    I agree. But the hardest part about easy fish is feeding...lol

    Oh, I forgot star and clove polyps. Theyre both cool and grow like weeds if you want fast growers.
