    I've heard that there are soft corals that are not good to have in the same tank with LPS corals. What are the soft coals to keep with my LPS?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Soft corals may become invasive, competing for real estate. Some soft coral may participate in allophathy. Can you keep both just fine in a mixed reef sure.
    Isolate invasive types like Xenia or GSP. Use carbon if your keeping larger leathers.

    There is really no soft corals, mushrooms, zoanthids or gorgonians that can not go with LPS. Plan for faster growth from the soft corals.
