Xenia's are easy, can be a PITA though they grow fast. I have some on a rock that grow faster than I could clip. So I took the rock out drilled holes it and now I put frags around so when it grows out it grows on the frag piecies and then I take them to LFS and get paid, or tade in for other stuff.

You might want to check into a light like this 2Ft/4Bulbs fixture It would end up being the cost of about 5 or 6 small frags. Then get the corals.

what is the length of your tank? I have this T5 HO and I love it! Mine is a 48" but I have all kinds of corals growing under it! You also wanna look at different bulb combos you don't want all white

Xenia will die without proper lighting.
A sun coral is non photosynthetic and needs to be fed meaty foods a couple times a week. You can try those-
