200lbs live rock
1 blue devil damsel
1 3-striped damsel
5 green chromis
1 large tomato clown
20-25 hermit crabs
10 or so turbo snails
various other snails
Fluval 304 Filter
Protien skimmer (forget brand)
3 Power heads

Bubble tips are very hardy and do not require metal halides or strong lighting, they do need about 4 watts/gallon though. I like using VHO lighting, just because my corals and such seem to like it better. Also, I beleive bubble tips are good for just about every type of clown.

I believe that E Quadricolor (bubble tips) are the most common and most often successful in aquaria. I would recomend the rose variety for color, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While you can do without MH, I'd get them anyway if you're buying lights - it'll give you more options down the line.

You could try a torch coral or hammer coral first. My two clowns hang out in those just as much as they do my anenomes.
