The problem with corals is the lighting it is to intense for for our ceph freinds eye's its like starring at the sun for long periods.Also anything that stings is a no NO!You can do low light corals like mushroom's maybe a suncoral.

you can keep anything such as zoos mushrooms and leathers... just use dark actinics for your coral lighting and regular flourescents for the whites so its not too bright in the tank

I keep several small bright orange deep water "frilly" sponges that do very well under my LED lighting.
