Default Corals for rocks

So I have my sand bed the way I want with corals. What are good corals that are good on the rocks? I have a small hammer, candy cane, mushroom and zoas. What else is good to take over and make the rocks look amazing? Trying to start conversation.

Default SPS

GSP and zoas, palys are like herpes..
Once you have them you can't get rid of them

personally I like sps or LPS,, they can be deleted fairly easily if needed

can you give me some examples of specific stuff for a 120 with 2 hydra 52. There is too much to research and I would like to narrow it down.

youre set with lighting.

if you just want to cover the bare rocks, but not really change the shape; more mushrooms and more zoas!!!

if you want things growing out of the rocks and changing the shape and height of things, you can pretty much add anything else.

the easiest being softies, LPS; acans, torches etc. then more advanced, sps will encrust onto the rocks and grow out.

a 120 is a great working size, and will look awesome once everything has grown in!

Ya. I'm thinking with my hammer on the rock I'll add zoas and mushrooms to liven them up.

Do NOT put GSP on the rocks. I isolated mine on the sandbed but it snuck up from behind on a rock and is stuck on now. Currently looking for the best way to nuke it...
