Question What type of corals should I get for my tank?

First off, this is my first saltwater tank, although I have 6 months experience in the freshwater hobby. I'm probably going to get a 30-gallon saltwater tank. It's going to have 30 lbs. of live rock. It's also going to have 2 ocellaris clown fish, 1 green clown goby, and 1 firefish. I would like some corals to go along with them. Which types of corals are best suited for the job that are easy to take care of? How much current do they need? How bright should the lights be? How many fit in the tank? How much do they cost? etc...

Answers greatly appreciated!

These are probably the most wide questions you can ask for.

1) Define Easy. There are three types of corals, and everything depends on your setup.
2) Depends on setup.
3) Depends on setup/what you want.
4) Depends on setup.
5) Free to $1000

You really need to tell us about your future plans in equipment if you want answers.
