You can keep Lps, softies, and low-moderate light sps if placed at the top.

How bout some of these bad boyz. Anything with moderate lighting and in your budget would be good. I like the yellow pylops

you can keep a maxima clam under a 4 lamp T5ho in a 20gallon, and whatever sps corals you want. 20s are not very tall thus require less lighting. that being said with individual reflectors and quality lamps T5s are incredibly intense and as far as i'm concerned more then capable of growing the same as MH or LEDs if you use the correct amount of lamps and on a side note T5s will give you a much nice light spectrum then any MH will

I am keeping everything including a maxima clam under the fish need it fixture. I don't think you'll have any problems.
