    I got a rock of mushrooms right after my cycle was finished, and it did very well and i still have it. I also got a rock of GSP very soon and it too has continued to grow and flourish. In many ways, corals are easier than fish!

    My first corals were right at the end of my cycle (about 3 weeks)

    1 kenya tree
    1 frag of 4 zoa heads
    1 anthelia tree
    1 ricordia
    1 teal mushroom

    I got a nice hook up from a fellow reefer on Craigslist! They are all growing very nicely still!

    I got my GSP about a month after my cycle finished, and after a year, I can't seem to get rid of it fast enough.
