List your top 5 favorite corals


New member
I'm putting together a project and need a comprehensive list of the top 5 or so corals you would want, or that you have in your reef aquarium.

Really think about this and try to respond with detailed information.

This will not be a waste of your time, there is a benefit on the horizon for your labor.

Stay tuned!!!!!
