I would definitely get a Metallic Green Torch coral. The color and shape is something you currently don't have. Same for the Duncan Coral. Also, if you want a carpeting coral, green star polyps looks real nice. Another coral that would look real good yet different from anything else you got us a crocea clam. While not real a coral per say, they come in many great colors and draw interest to the sand bed. Same goes with a lobo brain coral.

These corals listed above would accent your already nice stocking list you currently have.

some of the sinulariatypes are a good soft coral. Clove polyps come in a number of colors and are easy going.Star polyps are a fast grower and come in a few varieties. What kind of coral are you looking for? I am a brain fan myself,then again I like em all.

Yes clams are a little more demanding than your soft corals and can become calcium hogs. Hmm do you have some caulastrea in your tank? there is a variety called kryptonite that is vibrant green,then there is a caulastrea furcata that is red and green mouths"crazy cool". Acans are easy to keep and come in every color you could want. Photosynthetic gorgonians like the lavender whip can add some flowing purple.Honestly the list is endless. Do you have a budget to stick by or can you just cut loose?

In case you ever wanted a clam, crocea clams stay small and don't effect your calcium levels. I keep one in my 29gal biocube and only dose kent marine nano parts A and B every once in a while. The man thing is lighting as they are mostly synthetic, but also require weekly feeding of coral food (phyto). If you interested, post your lighting specs.

I was really interested in the gorgonians. But as for clams if I were to ever have in that tank is a nano cube..with three (LED?) lights. One white, one blue, and a moonlight one.
