cool, the reason I only have 1 light right now, is #1 I had the balast from an old setup, and #2, the cross brace along the top of the tank is glass, so the single light can get the whole tank without having a dark strip down the center like so many other tanks I've seen/had.

As I said, I'm mostly interested in softies and corals that will move in the current. I think they are the most interesting to watch.

well, it just seems like there are sooooooo many variations and species of coral, if I want LPS and softies, there are still about 50 species I can easily get a hold of.

How do I know which of these will be the best for my setup, and which of them will require special feeding or other accomodations.

okay, so what I did is i just went through like a coral database and looked at the pictures of the type that I wanted (in your case softies or LPS). then once I had picked out ten I liked, I looked at their info and figured out what was best for me.

like this one for instance: Coral Information Database - Nano-Reef.com

Liveaquaria.com is a good start. For flowing corals, I would go for LPS like frogspawn and torch corals. In soft corals theirs kenya trees, Anthelia, Xenia. Heres a good place to get some cheap. http://www.marshreef.com/modules.php...wtopic&t=41070 Selling a bunch of LPS and similar corals.

I would look at the galleries of some of our members. They will give you plenty of ideas. You can look at my images if you want. I have mostly all soft and LPS corals.

I want to stay relatively low tech. Do LPS and softies require dosing or calcium reactors or anything like that, (in most cases)

Btw, I'm thinking a pair of either picasso clowns or maroon clowns, and a blue hippo for starters. I'm debating on buying one of those "clean up crew" package deals from liveaquaria.com

You shouldn't need to dose anything. Regular PWCs should take care of it.
