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...

frogspawn
modern
bubble
fox
torch
galaxia
most any brains
acanthastrea
chalice
hydnophora

SPS
might try
bali green slimer

You might even pull off a 3" crocea clam up high. At the first hint of recession trade it.
