And I would start with mushrooms and zoos because you can't kill them

If your parameter are good you can add corals, you don't need calcium or coral food unless you have a lot of skeleton corals and have corals that require feeding. Just keep up with your water change and your corals will be happy. Make sure your light will support the corals you plan to get.

Just keep the water clean and they will be happy. What size tank is the light over, but with that light you can keep zoas and shroom.

It's over a 55g I'm thinking it should be sufficient.

Yeah you'll be fine with that light until you get into higher light demanding corals.
