Coral bioload, effects?

I am about to buy a bunch of coral frags, but I have a question about the bioload of corals. I have the opportunity to but 15+ frags of assorted softies, lps, and sps for less than $65, but my issue is can my 3g pico support this large addition of coral?

I understand the bio load for corals is relatively very low, and my tank is around 5 months running.
Traditionally, I believe the norm is to add corals maybe 5-6 at a time, so I thought I'd ask before buying.

As long as I can fit them, will it be fine to add? Thanks for any help!

Your params are pretty solid right? I think you'll be fine bio load wise, but still don't know where you'll put them :p

Yep, params are no problem, stable and near optimal. Hardest part will indeed be fitting them working on that now
