My first soft coral was the Colt. The LFS assured me it was a great beginner coral, and I promptly propped it in the center section of my display and enjoyed how it waved to and fro with the current. As soon as I walked away, my brand new coral was sucked into the intake of a nearby pump! It fully recovered, and it grew daily. A large piece attached itself to a neighboring rock, which was transferred to my other tank with equal success. VHO or PCs seem perfect.
