Advice: The hobby is addictive and very expensive. Do not overstock - the experts were right. Stay away from anemones. Go slow and be patient. - I was not and it cost me dearly.

Corals/Plants: I honestly don't know the names of them. No hard or soft corals. The simple things: mushrooms, star polyps, pulse corals (arguably not simple), tubeworms, and a clam.
