Question What Corals Should I Add Next?

Hi, I currently have a 66 gallon reef tank with 2 clowns, 2 banggai cardinals, a royal gramma, and a tailspot blenny. The corals I have are : 3 frags of GSP, a hammer coral, a toadstool leather, a Kenya tree, a Green trumpet coral, and 2 small colonies of zoanthids (Fruit Loop and Eagle Eye). I think I might be making the hour and a half trek to the nearest (thankfully also my favorite) fish store some time this week to pick up some more inverts and maybe 1 or 2 new corals. I would like something that doesn't need to be target fed (yet). I have read about Dunkin Corals. Some people say they spotfeed and some people don't. I also like torch corals. May also pick up some more zoas. Anybody have input on any of the corals I mentioned above, and what other corals do you think would be a good choice for me?

Everything you mentioned would be fine. They're all in the same boat as far as having the same requirements as what you already have.

I don't spot feed my Duncan... but it'll grab food out of the water column every once in a while.

Do you have any other suggestions?

As a beginner I am finding the frog spawn, hammer and duncan all seem to be pretty trouble free. We added a torch and it was a little harder to get the flow right.

No, we havenít been spot feeding. Just throw in some reef roids a couple times a week. He seems pretty happy.

Thank you guys! I actually ended up buying a green torch coral, a rainbow acan, and a cynarina coral. I know, I know, I said that I didn't want a coral that I had to target feed but I couldn't help it.
