New to it all!

So I just bought a all set up 20 gal long tank and everything is good but my nitrate (witch I'm working on with constant water changes suggested by my local fish store). I have 1 maroon clown, one royal gramma, one mystery wrasse, and one pigmy hall fish. I'm working on rehiring all but the maroon and getting a little male for her. I want to do all coral wig the two clowns. Any suggestions on resilient anemones and coral for a newby?

Hello! It's too late to add another clown to that system. They need to be added at the same time. Anenomes need alot of light and pristine water conditions. Good easy corals are soft corals and some Lps. What kind of light do you have?

I have a coral life 100000 k I believe and the tank is very shallow. I'm also having some trouble with algae... And most people have told me not too add another clown but my local fish store has some special tricks and I think I may try it and they have worked for him and many others I have read about. But if the fighting gets too bad I will take him out.
