Starting my coral adventure

So I'm new to SW and am about to dive into my first corals. I'm thinking about just doing soft corals in my 75g with my current orbit marine lighting system. I like zoas and polyps, might even get some mushrooms. Any advice for a coral newbie? Do I have to dose anything? Any suggestions of where to buy online

Your weekly water changes will ensure your corals will get everything they need.
Soft corals and polyps are very easy to keep and low light.

awesome thats what i like to hear
i figured always better to start with the easy stuff.
Now how many zoas can i introduce at once. I have 3-4 different ones that im interested in. Should i only add 1 or 2 at first or can i add all of them if there aren't many polyps?

Liveaquaria has good products. If you want ideas check out my tank pic link in my signature. That is a LPS tank.

What kind are you looking for? Generic or designer Zoas?
