I didn't realize clowns, chromis, and firefish were corals. :lol: j/k



Good stuff for beginners = zoanthids, mushrooms, star polyps, yellow polyps, xenia. Just be aware of their behaviors, such as xenia or star polyps can take over your tank if left unchecked. I keep my green star polyps on their own island so they can't grow all over my rock. Xenia manages to find ways to pop up everywhere. Yellow polyps will just keep marching along if not kept off on their own too.
