What corals

Ok here it is

20 gallon tank
2 clowns
20 pounds live rock
aragonite substrate


My light:
Coralife 24 inch Compact Flourecent fixture, 1 65 watt 10,000k lighting and 1 65 watt blue antic lighting. A total of 130 watts


Corals that i know i will be getting
button polyps
Mushrooms

With around 6.5 watts per gallon i guess i could put some stronger corals..... Hardy light loving corals are nice, i love the look of polyps, nothing bony.

deffinatly not anemones (very hard to take care of and not reccomended by other people in this forum, im probably going to get a fake plastic anemone anyway) also my light is ok but not good enough for anemones.

Zoas are also considered button polyps then...
