I completely disagree with the opinion that you don't need to supplement. While it is true that regular water changes with high quality salt will provide ample nutrients/supplementation, I always recommend to routinely dose Calcium, Phyto, Iodide, and Strontium & Molybdenum. This is because as you add more corals and as your corals grow over time, they will require more elements than what your water changes will provide. Also, you don't want to ever be deficient in any of the above. Better safe than sorry. If you want your corals to really grow, your levels of these elements need to be high. They will absorb them regularly, so make sure you always have the right amount for them to do so. I have 50+ corals in my 125g tank and they all are flourishing because I regularly dose the above supplements.

Alright I understand that but I have a few friends that don't dose the low end corals and they do great

How long before the corals I put in the tank be acclimated and open up. Grab a blue and red mushroom and 2 nice looking bunches of polyps.

I think it really depends on the coral, I had corals that opened up right after they went in and corals that took a little longer.

Post picture when you can.

You do not need to feed almost all corals. They get the majority of nourishment from the light. I would also start small with like zooas, mushrooms, leathers maybe even an LPS like a frogspawn of a hammer coral.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
