Cool Peaceful stock for a 55!

Hey everyone!
So I am almost a year into my tank now! But, I currently have only one clownfish in a huge 55 gallon tank! My levels are great with nitrates 10 or below and I have plenty of live rock. I have two taotronic panels now that I got as a gift and would also like beginner coral suggestions too. I'm so excited to get started with the rest of my stock!

I would say start softies, also if you really want to get into corals get your nitrates below 5, if you really want SPS Nitrates mostly have to be undetectable. I would. Recommend GSP or Zoas such as Radioactive or Eagle Eye. Also Toadstools also seem to be pretty easy for beginners. GL.

Thank you! Do you have any recommendations as far as fish go? Also how do you light acclimate the corals? I would probably have to change my water to a reef mix before getting coral too right? I have instant ocean right now lol

Any salt mix should do for beginners, I think you may only need something more when dealing with large heavily stocked tanks but at that point most people start dosing, as far as fish go I have a pair of these guys in my 65 and they have quickly become my current favorite fish to watch http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...150&pcatid=150
