    I'm a big fan of mushrooms myself, or i just got a Green nepthea earlier from another member and that is easily going to become my favorite piece in my tank!

    Another that i feel is a must have in my tanks at least, pulsing xenia, i know most people consider them weeds but if you get the right ones they look absolutely amazing, in my opinion at least :)

    A Devils Hand Leather I think would be a great addition.

    While I'm pretty sure it is technically an LPS. Torch Coral. love the long wavy tentacles in the current

    I will second the Gold Aussie Torch Coral! Slow grower and a bit pricey, but amazing. Brian at Onestopcorals (User Asianreef) usually has some nice specimens.

    I've always loved a good yellow Fiji leather. Otherwise I'm apparently a fan of large orange rics because I've got over 90. (Very cool in a colony)

    Anything Bright yellow needs higher spectrum light. Now days most people run too blue of a tank to maintain a bright yellow coral. Also any LEDs fixtures that have only cool whites likely won't be able to maintain bright yellow.

    A nice green nepthia is always a mainstain for soft corals easy to find. Yellow devils hand is one of my favorites most lfs won't carry them and likely have to special order or get online. There is a soft coral I don't know the actual name but commonly goes my pulsing leather. The color isn't special as it is your typical pinkish soft coral color but the polyps are very fuzzy and details and when the pumps are off you can see them pulse like xenia. You would see the pulse with pumps on though.
