This will heavily depend on your lighting. Im going to guess you have something considered to be low light since you are new. Mushrooms and zoanthids do okay under lower light. If you really want to amaze yourself and friends, get a good ($$$) light.

It will be one of the most fullfilling things you spend your money on! Nothing like seeing corals when they are thriving! The most beautiful things on earth are things that are alive...

HO is High Output.

What are the dimensions of your tank? I would say you are fine to but in just about an coral if its around the same dimensions as the 50g over here.

Easy Low light:
zoanthids
mushrooms
xenia
toadstools/leathers

easy med/high light:
Orange/purple/green cap
Green bali slimer
pink/green birdsnest
green stylo.
