Thank you for responding! I was thinking Zoanthus, Green Star Polyp, Kenya Tree, or Pumping Xenia. Though I would be interested if you had any recommendations.

I personally like LPS corals but that’s just me.
I would not do green star polyps since they get everywhere.
Try a toadstool leather instead of Kenya tree. They are already and are more colorful.
I like tubestrea too. They are nonphotosynthetic so they need to be fed but beautiful and if care is taken to feed them they are fairly easy.
For coral growth many people follow the philosophy of "heavy in heavy out". Because many corals are filter feeders feeding on the nutrition in the water. I don't have experience with a coral only tank, and don't believe many people do this. I feel coral growth may suffer if the corals aren't fed, and if corals are fed then you will end up needing the same equipment as a regular marine aquarium would use. Unless maximizing coral growth isn't a concern. This is something you may want to consider as you're doing your planning.
