Nice link, but stay away from the sps (Small Polyped Stoney) Corals for the moment.Here's quite a nice writeup on some common corals, includes lots of info:

Red Sea, Indian to central Pacific Ocean Regions
Moderate to High, maintains in lower light conditions but the same amount of growth will not be observed.
Very aggressive, needs adequate room in the aquarium for growth. P. sinuosa (pictured at left) extends only 1" to 2" sweeper tentacles at night or when feeding whereas P. simplex can extend sweepers up to 6" or more.
Low to Moderate. Under high current conditions this coral will not extend to it's full capacity. High currents can tear the tissue away from the skeleton causing necropsy and many times death. Will expand dramatically in low current conditions.
Excellent. Good for beginners with large enough aquariums to house this very fast growing species. They have been known to double or even triple in size (with good water conditions) in only a few months time. The coral pictured here was the size of a fifty cent piece when fully expanded when it was purchased a little over a year ago. It is now approx. 6" in diameter when expanded.
Low to Middle regions, not directly under halides.
Yes it possible. Do research on the different corals and how they effect neighbors if any.... possible I mean
