What do you recommend and what was your 1st coral. I am getting a free frag of a tree coral from my cousin. But what would you recommend for a 1st coral. i have 25 gallon with 60watts!

Shrooms, stars, xenia, sarcophytons, and leathers are all good to start off with... The key is to do your research before you buy the peice! Know the requirements, and then place it in the tank, where ever it would be best suited...

Green stars are a good place to start, they are easy to care for, grow quikly, and are very beautiful! -Go for it!

That is a good choice, just don't be discouraged IF they don't open for a few days.  Give them time.

Another nice coral that I don't hear championed much are clove polyps.  I have found them very hardy, fast growing, and very, very easy to frag (just pull some apart!).  And no I don't work for Clove Polyp.com! :)

Hey mmarquis, when you are talking about clove polyps are you reffering to clavularia or anthelia? The reason I'm asking is that I'm looking at buying some anthelia when I get back to the SF Bay Area, this weekend... So I would be interested in your take on them!!
