My 75 gallon FOWLR

My tank will be started in about a month. Just wondering what some good beginner corals are?

5 green chromis (green/blue)
1 royal gramma (pink/yellow)
1 percula clown (orange/white/black)
1 yellow tang (yellow)
1 flame angel

1 emerald crab
1 ruby crab
1 pom pom crab
1 porcelain crab
1 cleaner shrimp
1 blood red shrimp
1 scarlett HC
1 blue leg HC
1 halloween HC
1 zebra HC
1 feather duster
15 nassarius snails
15 black turbo snails

So far I have the chromis, royal gramma, clown, emerald, pom pom, porcelain, scarlett, blue leg, feather duster, some nassarius, and some turbos in my other tanks.

This will be a 75 gallon with a 20 gallon sump

What kind of lights are you putting over it?
Zoanthids are always a good start. Soft corals in general are usually lower light and easier to care for, but often aren't the most eye catching.

Also, FOWLR means you aren't planning on corals. You might want to graduate to 75 gallon reef :p

Not 100% sure what would you suggest? I want something that will do most corals and make my fish look the best they can.

I would suggest that you go with a T5HO system. You could basically do most corals with that. Some good starters are

1. Yellow polyps
2. Button polyps
3. Bubble coral
4. mushrooms
5. Hammer coral
