your best bet are frags from other reefers' tanks.

agreed. Many of the staghorn type Acropora species are typically hardy, the 'hairier' versions, like twon8 said, as are many Pocilloporids.

From my experience:

A. sarmentosa..
A. nana
A. valida..


Are you saying that these acros are hardier then stylophoras?

I had to do a double-take on that stylo one. I started my tank a few months ago and have kept montipora, seratiapora, pocillopora, and stylophora with no problems. I have one blue tip staghorn that has receeded from the base and under some branches(noticed after I treated for cyano). I don't see red bugs or anything. I just have to see how it will fair. So far it hasn't receeded anymore, and the polyps are emerging further.

really any of the ORA stuff


Really, if you keep up with things all corals are just as easy to keep as any other.
