Do I have to wait a certain amount of time to start putting corals in a new tank?

Do I have to wait a certain amount of time to start putting corals in a new tank? It has been up and running for about 10 weeks, parameters are great, and fish are doing just fine. I have an Orbit marine LED system on my tank, and want to start adding corals. Also, what kind of corals can these lights support?

I don't know anything about those lights specifically but turn them down low and slowly acclimate your corals to your light. What kind of coral do you want?

Agree. And it might help to do a coral dip as well just to be on the safe side. Unless you're TOTALLY confident with where you're getting them from.
