So, I'm pretty new to the reef game, and I'm looking for some good beginner corals. I don't have anything to trade as of yet, but always looking to make some friends that I can help out later. Also, any good tips you want to slip in would be awesome!

I would recommend throwing up a small write up on your system equipment,parameters,and livestock this way we can know a little bit more about what may be suitable for your tank.Lighting and filtration plays a big roll such as what kind of skimmer\or no skimmer at all. Right off the bat I wll say that mushrooms and star polyps are rather good at adapting to parameters of all sorts.I might be able to cut you off a peice if your tank is all cycled.

Super nice filteration and circulation my friend.May I ask what kind of media you have in that filter? Drop me a line here and we can work out a time for me to throw you some polyps.What are you thinking about as far as corals go?

Well, I have a zoa frag on order. A nice Dragons eye. But I am looking for a frogspawn/torch/hammer for my tanks center piece, as well as maybe a birdsnest. I don't know yet. I am looking for a decent assortment, and will probably upgrade my lighting sometime this year to support harder corals. Maybe even upgrade the tank. Who knows haha.

The three frags are all doing awesome. The GSP is being a little lazy, and not opening up to much. But the fade to green is doing awesome. The pavona hasn't fully opened, but isn't as pissed off. So thanks man. Looking into that zoa site right now. I might join you...
