I am thinking of getting some starter corals (Polyp's)

This is my current setup:

75 Gallon tank (48" x 18" x 18")
140 lbs of live rock
Pro Clear Protein Skimmer
Eheim Wet/Dry Canister Filter
Heater
1/10 hp Chiller
standard light that came with the tank

Suggestions on what I need to do to prep my tank for this?

standard lighting? what do you mean by that? and I would suggest you just go all out and get the best lighting because sooner or later, you're going to get the bug and buy a helluva lot more corals than you ever planned Wink (I started out with a small frag with like 5 poylps of brown skirt zoos and green skirt zoos for 12 dollars...I planned to get that only...but now...spent several hundred on corals...>.<)

something of this sort:

will you help you keep most anything Smile prolly all but sps and others Smile

also, there are other corals that DON'T require any lighting Smile such as sun coral BUT they MUST be fed instead Smile and since they're unlike fish and won't come to the food, you have to go and feed them Smile
