What light for tank with button polyps and mushrooms

20 gallon high tank with 24" length, 15" deep 12" wide
2 tb ocellarius clownfish
20 pounds of live rock in the beginning, will add more when i get more money.
2 power filters with foam inserts, one with bio-wheel, will clean inserts almost daily in clean de-chlorinated saltwater
Sponge filter with a powerhead


I plan on having a few green mushroom corals with lots of button polyps. What lighting system will i need? I have 200 dollars to spend

Also do i need blue antics? If i get blue antics do i lose the watts that a normal 10,000K lamp will be?
