Adding coral? How much

Had my tank going for 10 weeks. All levels at 0. Have 2 clowns, damsel and a dottyback. I want to start adding some coral. Not sure how much i can add. Looking at some frogspawn and maybe zoa?? Any thoughts?

Your system is still very new start slow and with hardy coral. I'd add some zoas maybe a couple nice mushrooms. See how they do before you go too crazy.

One hardy coral per week is my rule. It prevents me from making an uninformed decision. I felt really excited at the beginning and got one coral per week. After the first 3-4 corals, I'm slowing down to 1 coral per month to find the best corals that I want.
Kind Regards,

This rule also keeps food on the table.
