I would stick to zooa's, mushrooms and leathers. You are really limited as far as that lighting. here is a link for cheap t5's that would allow you to get more corals.

If you upgrade your lights. The fixture I linked is only like $100 bucks. And it's not half bad either. You could grow ALOT of different corals with it, no nems but lots of corals.

I wouldnt do it personally. That single bulb is barely enough for mushrooms and zooas.

I doubt there would be enough light, it would most likely not make it and it for sure wouldn't thrive under a single bulb.

I vote to save up for the light you need. here is another option, it's abit more money BUT you could keep anything you wanted under it

Odyssea Metal Halide System

It's cheap and an ok fixture for the money. I;m thinking of adding one to my 20g coral tank.

Well, the first fixture I linked for $109 is a good deal and not too much money so you wont' be going all out on it. I started with a 29g regular sw tank and used the same fixture for a few months until I upgraded. It was easy to sell the setup since it had decent lights not to mention I used them for a few months and grew some really nice corals.

As far as your clowns hosting, they like flowy corals, like torches, leathers and just about anything else that sways and flow. BUT there is no guarantee that your clowns will host anything. I have 2 pairs and neither host anything.
