thanks for the comments guys. anybody got any ideas of what i might be able to try out. want to try rasing as many different types of corals as i can before i get my 150gal. so then ill know already how to take care of them for when i buy colonies instead of just frags lol. running 6 bulb t5 lighting sytem aquac remora portein skimmer. and the perameters i keep on the higher and as in alkalinity and all that. so if you guys and girls got any ideas or anything that would look cool in the tank let me know right now im leaning towards trying more sps and puting them on the top to see how they do like millies and stuff.

You have a very diverse collection of corals there.
I always found Blastomussa Wellsi to be the hardest to keep alive. If you can get those to survive then you are golden.

However, you need to decide what type corals you would like to keep. Do you want SPS dominant, LPS, leathers, zoanthids or mixed reef.
You want to keep in mind about chemical warfare in a mixed reef. I run carbon on the weekends just take any toxins out of the water.

If you are going more SPS get your tank to mature before getting them. That is the key.

When I first setup my tank I had all sorts of problems with SPS. Now if I accidentally break a piece it will start growing were the piece falls. lol
