If you can start all over again, what type of reef would you create in your own tank? SPS only, LPS only, softies only, or a mix and match?

I am trying to decide on what type of corals I should aim for in my new 72x36x28" tank and would I like to hear the opinions and experiences, as well as the pros and cons, on each of the different "reef-ecosystems".

I think you're better off asking in the Reef Discussion section, this is the Coral Propagation and Aquaculture section.

I figured that when it was too late :)

My frag tank is SPS and Softies. No LPS, i worry about chemical warfare. Also LPS besides acans are boring to me.

I only have SPS and Zoas in my tank. If I were to upgrade to a larger tank I'd go with the same.

But honestly this question is purely personal preference. What do you like to look at? Go with that.

For me, I have learned more of what I don't want. Some stuff gets out of control (xenia, certain mushrooms, etc.). Otherwise there are some pretty bad *** pieces of every kind of coral (sps, lps, and softies)!!!

Yea it truly is personal preference and i agree with fity2pounder theres usually a type of coral usually those that grow uncontrollably versus only one type that you like. There are a ton of beautiful corals of all types so it just really boils down to what you would want in your reef!
