Is there any particular type of habitat you're going for? Perhaps future selections you must have. Overall, I've had very good luck with mushrooms. Their very hardy and do not propogate as badly as some others.

You can get bright green mushrooms. Very hardy. Will work with your light. Possibly a Torch coral.

And Mushrooms do multiply. I've noticed from my experience they are pretty good for 1 to 2 years; then start multipling rapidly. Some hobbyist consider them a pest. Others have mushroom tanks. Only coral in it from top to bottom. Looks neat.

you said hardy and gorgonians should be kept by very advanced aquarist in my opinion and shouldn't even be sold so widely. they have very special food requirements and most do not do well. Over a long period of time they well slowly quit extending and feeding and die.
