First Coral

I have a 72 gal tank that has ben up and running for 8 months. Tank has 130 lbs live rock and I run 20 gal sumo with Aqua C Urchin skimmer. I run 4 x 65W PC lights. Iam looking to add my first coral and the lfs reccomended a mushroom and/or frogspawn. From my reading I think these are good coral for my tank. Am I right?

Also, do I have to target feed the frogspawn?

I expect that the weekly water chnages will replace any trace elements and that dosing will not be required?

Sounds good. Both are pretty easy to care for. No target feeding needed.

I put pulsating xenia in as my first coral....it has doubled in size in about a month.

I also have some Green Star Polyps and some Zoos....all seem to be doing very well, and I have even fragged the GSP a little!
