15 Easy Saltwater Aquarium Reef Corals

By

Many novice (and experienced) saltwater aquarists are a bit leery about starting a Reef Tank with marine corals. Their requirements not being very well understood, corals used to be almost impossible to keep for any length of time in a marine aquarium. Over time and with many successful and failed experiments along the way, the knowledge, products and information are now in place, so that many corals can now be successfully kept in even mini, micro and nano aquariums. Some are now considered "easy" to maintain while many other corals are still deemed difficult to nearly impossible for the average Reef Tank hobbyist.
