Beginners Coral?

Hi guys,

As a newb to the SW tank scene i was just wondering if there is such thing as a coral that is hard to look after? I have 2 clowns and want some nice corals on my LR,

Any recommendations?

Thanks Dan

what kind of lights are you running? the lights and maturity of the tank play a major role in keeping corals...well those along with some chemical factors such as Alk and Cal. let us know what you are running and then we can make a few recomendations.. keep in mind however that not all corals will live happily with each other or some other inhabitants in the tank as some can sting and others will eat fish that get to close...
