coral questions

What type of coral can I hold in my 20 gallon tank with 2 24 watt t5 bulbs one is a 10000k and the other is a 420 antanic. I really want to get mushrooms and another which I don't know the name of it. It's has like neon green tips.
Thanks

Mushrooms might survive, but that is not much light. The other coral you are describing sounds like SPS and would not work in this setup.

Is the tank ready to house coral? What are your nitrates and phosphates testing at?

Are you skimming? How long has the tank been established?

I'd agree, mushrooms "might" be ok under a twin bulb setup but not much else. Here is a great site with cheap lighting options. I would look at the four bulb fixtures

fish need it;lights; food;Sponge

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The other coral I think your reffering to is green star polyps or GSP.
