supplements needed for good torch coral health?

I finally finished my cycle and everything is going great. Today I purchased a torch coral without doing much research on it. I was hoping someone could tell me what supplements will keep my torch coral in good health .

it shuld be fine as long as your cal alk levels are ok. mine is doing great and all i really add is coral accel. torches are pretty hardy and should do well as long as you have good water quality.

80F

I keep mine at 82F all the time so ya 80F will be fine. Just dont let the temp fluxuate alot. Like if its 75 in the morning and 80 in the evening every day then thats not all that good.
