Since you are new I would go with a FOWLR. Get some experience behind you then move on to corals.

Hope this helps

Boy some people get all the luck, that's cool! Clowns are great and they are fun to watch and so are the shrimp I like the cleaner shrimp especially if they clean one of the fishes, I actually saw one do this it was cool. Can't wait to see pics of your tank

i have a 29gal hex, the problem i had with corals and anenomes was the lighting. it's just so deep! the lighting requirements that was needed would not fit, unless i went with mh. but maybe your buddy could hook you up.

good luck!!
