Well corals and anemones woulld be dependant on what type and kind of lighting that you have.

What setup are you running and we can make some suggestions for ya!

Well, with a double t5 you are kinda limited in what you can keep. For sure no anemone with only 2 bulbs. if you go with 4 bulbs you should be good to keep a nem as well as a good selection of corals.

Some of my favorite corals that are easy and pretty are: GSP (green star polyps), zooanthids, toadstools, ricordia mushrooms, frogspawn, hammers and blastomussa. If placed higher up on the rock under 4 bulbs you could even keep some montipora. They grow soo fast and come in a few different colors like red, green and purple.

A great resource is Aquarium Fish: Tropical Freshwater Fish and Saltwater Fish for Home Aquariums they have most every coral you could want and will tell you what type of lighting it needs and if it's aggressive or not. An absolute great site to learn stuff and find the corals and fish you like. Check them out!

I've ordered fish online from a few different places and have had pretty good luck. Everything arrived alive (except for shrimp from aquacon) and did well. Liveaqauria is a great site to order from and they even have a 2 week guarantee which you usually won't find locally.
