36 gallon bow front

Howdy, I have a 36 gallon bow front with about 50 pounds of rock. A coral beauty, two small tomato clowns, and 3 damsels. I have a 10 watt 14000 k and 20 watt Actinic led floodlight. I will be moving so I'm planning on getting rid of the damsels. What are some good suggestions? They need to be coral friendly since I have some dragon eye polyps and plan on getting more once I purchase a protein skimmer

Ya I would love a tang. I was thinking a yellow tang or something with bright colors. I know they would eventually grow out of the tank but I'll be graduated from college in a year and plan on upgrading. I would like to have a couple of smaller fish such as a Goby, Wrasse, Anthias. But I want a fish that stands out. I haven't decided any specific species I'm just getting ideas.

Also, what corals would Yall suggest? I don't really know how to tell if their is enough watts per gallon with these leds. I've read somewhere that some had about the same wattage of floodlights and didn't have a problem with any corals

If you plan on upgrading there's no reason why you can have a baby? It will take a couple years for them to grow up

Lighting? Your way off, you will need more, way more at least 100 watts for your coral

Even leds? Everything I've read says that since they are larger leds instead of 1 watt lights a piece I don't need as much.
