Hey all, I just had an outbreak of Velvet in my display tank and although there are still a couple fish holding on, but I doubt they'll make it long judging by the symptoms showing. Therefore I will be going though the 76 day fallow period and since I've never kept hard corals before, this seems like a perfect opportunity to learn. Since I'm inexperienced with hard corals (except for sun corals), which corals would be good choices for a newbie? I was told the pocillopora genus would be a good choice but what are some others as well?

Thanks for those of you who can identify with what happened and try to help me out with knowledge or experience.

If you just mean stony corals, then LPS (large polyp stoney" is generally easier than SPS (small polyp Stoney)

Poccillopora is a type of SPS.

Easy LPS are euphilias - torch, hammer, or frogspawn corals. Candy cane, duncans, and favias are also usually pretty easy
