    This forum has lots of information about starting up a marine tank, DSB overflows etc, Iv got my tank up and running thanks to this forum..

    Now can someone please explain Coral: SPS,LPS etc.

    I know what they mean, but i need an explanation about what is classified as SPS, LPS, Softies? Which coral should i start with? Which ones require an experianced hobbyist? Minimum lighting requirements for the different types of coral?

    Im starting out and trying to work out whether to go fish only or Coral as well, but im absolutely clueless about coral..

    Please advise, im sure lots of us newbies will benefit..
