Hi pleco_cory_fan.

What is the size of the tank you are planning to set up?:) Any damsels are good to start with but I must warn you that these fish can be rather aggressive and you'll want to get rid of them sooner than you can expect. Green chromis is peaceful and is a good fish to start with.

Good luck with the salty side.;)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

20 gallon doesnt leave room for much of an option on things. look into gobies as most of them are pretty good. also for corals good beginners are mushrooms and polyps, they also do not require super strong lighting.
