How much you planning on spending for lights? That'll help you decide on reef or no reef.

Tangs, some wrasses, pygmy angels (could surprise and munch on corals one day, maybe not), blennies (sailfins, midas are awesome IMO), clowns, gobies (small and large). Those types not interesting enuf?

All the big angels like Queens, Emperors etc just eat your coral.

All angels big and dwarf will not work in a reef. I had two dwarfs that were model citizens for 4 yrs but they went to munching on my corals and almost wrecked my reef. The big angels are definitely going to be a big NO. You might get away with dwarf angels for a while but not with big angels.

Depends on the size of the fish you get.
