What types or species of corals do well in a 20g with moderate flow and dual T5 lighting.

Is it a 20H 2x 24" T5? Or 20 L 2 x 30". That may be too low IMO... but I would try and get high quality bulbs with high PAR Aqua Blue, and Blue +. I'd try a few LPS frags to start out incase its not enough. Zoa's will prob brown out on you. Don't invest heavy into corals until you know you have enough light... takes about a month to tell.

most likely anything will be fine but the highest of light and flow demanding animals...

i would avoid acros, croacea clams...all else would likely be fair game...

It's a 20 high with 24" t5's. I will be using ATI Coral plus and Aquablue special bulbs.

How much did you pay for the lighting set up?

I haven't got it yet. But it should be about $95 for the fixture and whatever my lfs sells the bulbs for.
