Not really, vertebrates have a spine, invertebrates have no spine....the internet is a great thing, check it out and do some searches, you will learn a ton.
BTW, a fish is not an invert......

roka's point is that you're maxed out on fish for that size of tank.

BUT... you can always add inverts, which means crabs, coral, shrimp... you get the drift. Those things will not dramatically change the "bioload" in your tank - meaning that while they do create waste, they don't create it at the same quantity as fish would. So adding coral won't push your water parameters out of whack... but adding fish will.

Torch corals in my area will go anywhere between $30 and $100 depending on the size.

I had one in my 46g for a little less than a year. I ended up selling it back to the LFS because it was getting so big it was "taking over" half of my tank. Torch corals can "reach out" with those tentacles and sting/kill other corals pretty quick. Let's just say they don't play nice.

For that reason, I'd be really hesitant in putting it in a 14g tank unless that's the only coral you want in there. They are really an aggressive coral.
