    besides mushrooms, what is a nice beginner coral? Any links or pictures would greatly be appreciated. Not saying I'm going to go out and buy some but just wondering what my options are for when I get that far. Thanks!

    I agree, but be careful with the star polyps, they spread quickly.

    Any type of soft corals or leathers, like a toadstool leather, xenia, colt coral. Zoanthids are colorful and easy.

    Just be fore warned about the kenya weeds (oops I ment trees).They can become a problem later on.They are worse than aiptasia.Matter of fact,I'd RATHER have the aiptasias.
