    I would put a softie in there, they are very resistant to abuse and other fish/critters bugging them.

    Try a Purple Gorgonian or a green leather. If you want to get fancy, you can get one of these Weeping Willow Toadstools. I actually have fish swim through the coral tentacles “forrest”

    I was thinking a green finger leather and or a colt coral or both for some Color variation. Also height and my fish will not stress then as much. I got a free toadstool last weekend when I got some cheap live rock so it's recovering slowly but growing already.

    Careful with those. When they settle in, they’ll sprout a bunch of babies nonstop. Can really overrun the tank. The gorg sways in the flow, glows in a spawning upward shape and has amazing deep purple. Also doesn’t turn into pest.
