definatley softies only and maybe some other lps. i suggest collerful zoo's like eagle eyes if ya can afford them or yellow star polyps,shrooms of all sorts leathers too.i would avoid the bubble and plate coral for begginers. A green open brain i suppose would be alright for a begginer. Dose your tank with calcium,iodine etc and keep up water changes and you should be goodB)


edit: oh also what light is she gonna have on her tank and what size tank. can you post specs.

If i were to dose, I would dose only a calcium/alkalinity supplement.


I would not dose all those supplements like iodine, strontium , manganese, and those other wacky elements
