8 gallon Nano Stock questions

These are some corals i'd like to have in my 8 gallon nano. How possible are they and which ones should i stay away from.
Tooth coral (galaxy coral)
Green star polyps
Thats what i have considered so far. Any suggestions for coral are welcome. I prefer hardy ones. Also i currently have 2 heads of zoas on a frag and a clownfish

The tooth coral is an LPS coral (Large Polyp Stony) and requires a bit better water parameters and lighting than softies such as zooanthids. I haven't personally kept a tooth coral, but I have kept other LPS. I think that a tank that small with an inhabitant like a clownfish might make it more difficult than if the tank were bigger...

I have kept GSP (Green Star Polyps). They grow like weeds and will follow the currents. Watch out, they can grow up the glass and all over everything in your tank if you are not careful...

LOL! It can look like grass all over the base of your tank if you let it!

Go for it though. It is nice looking stuff.
