Spend it however you want. That being said Zoas, Duncans, Leather corals are nice easy entry corals.

And Montipora, Digitata, and Cyphastrea.

Yes, I am still very much at the entry level/beginner stage, but I have some zoas that seem to be doing well, but currently dealing with the Dinos now, so my planned/future purchases will be delayed a little while for sure. Of course I've got more zoas (love the variety), a pulsing xenia, maybe a toadstool the digitata and cyphastrea are those that will be among the next candidates to join the tank. Acans hopefully down the road too.

Usually the gift cards are good for up to a year. You PMed Daniel, right?

Please PM Daniel! Otherwise you're just going to have advice about invasive corals and no corals to show for it!

Has anyone suggested blue clove polyps yet?

P.s. don't listen to any of this lot! They'll lead you right to ruin! Also, try Pandoras, I hear they are pretty and do well in any tank.

P.p.s. I belong with that lot, so don't listen to me either!

If it's me, I'm looking for not red and not green because the majority of your inexpensive corals are going to be red and green (some exceptions like Mushrooms and Zoas).

Also, depending on your local reefer scene, you can sometimes get good deals on zoas, so consider corals that aren't easy to propogate and get locally. Trachys, cynarinas, out-of-vogue-but-still-way-cool-corals like psammacoras and pavonas. Special pectinias like the teal tipped one they had.

Tank was set up in October. Pavonas and Psammacoras are probably fine.

Ah, that's very soon. Dry or live or ocean rock @GoogleWasMyIdea ? I'll have a look at your build.
You guys are killing me with the gifs! I’ve got dry rock…still waiting on the live rock from Tampa…ordered that shortly after things got wet. Saying it should arrive next week. We will see.

@tbrown its Xmas time so isn’t that the time for reds and greens? Well, maybe it’s Xmas year-round in some tanks.

You used Dr Tim's though? No corals yet? Besides the Zoas I mean.

@GoogleWasMyIdea looks like you're just through the ugly stage in your tank. Still just the two clowns? It may pay to add a few more fish before too many corals. I will get to my coral suggestions soon. As others advised, if you haven't pm @Daniel@R2R now. Like stop reading and do it or we will have a redraw on our hands.

You can listen to me because I don't know nor associate with the likes of @tbrown @JoJosReef nor @steveschuerger. And as long as you don't check that, you won't find my friendly conversations with all of them.

Now my coral choices: (which I might suggest waiting till spring to order, both for tank maturity and better shipping weather)
soft
