What corals to get?

Well I have a 65g tank and it's just finished cycling so I'm going to get a clean up crew at the weekend

I was wondering, if I am to get clown fish, do I need to get a anome? And what other corals are the best for beginners?

Thanks in advance

An anenome is toally not necessary, in fact it's not recommended for young tanks and they require ALOT of light.

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

I'd start simple, some zooa's maybe a leather. Theres SOO many to choose from. I'd stay away from the sps ones, like birdsnests for now.

I didn't even ask, what kind of lights are you running?

You can get some softies, like I mentioned above. I'd adjust them up if necessary in the tank. When you get the 4 bulb system running you should be set for others.

Mushrooms are a hardy beginner coral, frogspawn, kenya trees are also hardy. Most lps and softies should be ok.

The lighting unit is a 1200mm Arcadia with 4x 54w I just ordered 2 14000k blue t5's as well as 2x 10000k White t5's

What's the best cycle to put them on the blues in the morning and whites at midday?

Any suggestions?
