    Depending on your equipment (especially lighting and flow) and maintenance routine (water changes), you could look at a variety of Mushrooms, they come mainly in green, red and blue as well as striped. Softies are generally very forgiving, so have a look at some of the "tree" types like Kenya Trees.

    You can also have a look at Zoanthid & palythoa polyp corals. Great for any beginner & very forgiving...

    Looking nice, How about stacking some rock a bit higher up and covering it with different colour zoa frags.
    Would look awesome, Zoa garden;)
