I think that's close enough. If it goes down I would consider it.

How often do you do pwc's? That should be enough to keep your calcium at about 420-450....

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

I guess my biggest worry is I want "happy corals" and being still pretty new at this I just want to make sure I can meet their needs

keep your water clean and do your water changes timely and they will be fine. really. they just need the appropriate lighting and good water and flow and they will thrive. I have some corals that are 10x bigger in just a few months and I don't do anything special really.

Even if you do everything right, things can go sour. Just keep moving forwards and don't buy organisms that you can't maintain. Do some research before buying that $150 SPS coral.
