Setting up my new reef

Ok so right now I just wanted to ask what are the best types of corals that are pretty harding and will withstand a 2 1/2 month old tank. I have 2 clowns 3 turbo snails 2 small hermits and about 12 lfs of live rock. For the equipment I have a 20 gal with a biowheel 250 I think and a 10 gal sump about 20 lbs of live sand. I plan on making thia my dragging tank for when I setup my
55. I just need to sell my Oscar

Can't really tell you anything about corals that would do well since you haven't told us anything about your lighting.

That light will only be able to suppprt soft corals. If you want lps and sps, id suggesr looking into leds. They are cheap and hardy off of ebay.

Zoas, leathers, mushrooms, xenias
All pretty hardy, will do well with the light you have
