Adding corals

Hello. I've nearly finished cycling my 60g tank. I'm going to add some peppermint shrimp at the weekend any plan on stocking a few extra fish over the next 12 months or so. I haven't decided what yet though as there are so many (any ideas)? When during the process am I best to add a few corals. I only want 2 or 3 and what would you suggest. ?

Adding corals

What's your lighting? To start you should look into some zoas/palys, rics/mushrooms, leathers, or maybe some easy lps
Edit: you can add coral pretty much anytime after your cycle, but if this is your first attempt at sw I would wait an additional month or 2 until you get the hang of keeping your params stable, would also recommend this for the shrimp

Ok thanks. I have 4 t5 tubes, 2 are blue. I plan to upgrade these eventually but hopefully they will be adequate for 6 months or so.
