In my opinon i would go with the clowns, the clown goby and the six line wrase. But if its a 20 gallon tank you dont want to add to much. They are all more peacefull and shouldnt pick on eachother. Or if you wanted the royal gramma you could do that too. The corals should all be fine, granted your lighting is good. A cleaner shrimp would also be a good choice. they help to keep the fish disease free.

Blennys and phseudochromis can be territorial and mean in a small tank.

But if you want something different just let us know. its best if you tell us exactly what fish you like. Its better than me telling you what i would go with because you may like different things than i do.

From your list I'd say any 3 would be ok. I'd only get a pair of clowns not 3. But any 3 would make for a nice little 20g.

I'd stay away from the anemones unless tiny and you understand that when they grow they must leave. I'd stay away from the sun coral. They must be hand fed, and each mouth needs to be hand fed. A difficult coral.

Lol thanks for the advise.

Clowns like little cars, big shoes, and crying kids.
My pitiful attempt at humor.

Anemone fish tend to like anything puffy. 2 things. First it is not necessary to host them to anything at all in the confines of an aquarium. Second, most clown fish are captive bred these days. this means that they may not host even in the best of conditions. However they can sometimes be trained. All it takes is taping a pic of a clown fish in an anemone for them to get the idea. Very strange advice but it does work. Now to outline some ideas. Frilly mushrooms, leathers, sarcophyton, hammers, frogspawn, torch, galaxia, gorgonian flower pots. I do not recomend flower pot corals ever. Allowing a clown fish to host to a euphyllia or LPS can cause the death of that coral due to accidental breakage. They can easily wave the corals tentacles back and forth over the skeleton leading to infections.

I have seen corals host in so many things. I have even seen a maroon clown host in a giant maxima clam. If i would have thought about taking a pic, i would have. It was the wierdest thing.

But like CRM said, a clownfish doesnt need an anemone to be happy. It will make its home whereever he feels comfy. :)

First of all, lol i actually laughed at that. I know they dont need something i just thought it would be cool to have a clown and a bed for him. Thirdly i like the idea hammers and mushrooms (others il have to look into).
