new to coral

Ok so I started with a mystery thing kinda looks like xenia but I don't think it is if you can if please do lol it has a grey whitish base and brown tentacles if you touch it it sucks the brown things back in

Then bought a leather coral

Then today bought frogspawn, Duncan, candy cane

I have reef chilli for coral and flake and frozen for my fish (a pair of clowns)

And info, suggestions, tips ect. Would be appreciated

Can any of these sting me?
I read frogspawn can and candy cane can.

No sting here either, be careful not to overfeed your corals to much could cause algae problems. All the one you have use photosynsis to grow alittle treat won't hurt and does help just don't go overboard,

By adding to much nutrients to the water can cause problems with algae by having sufficient light these corals will grow. Hit the search for feeding corals or something similar and threads should pop up on this subject. I was feeding reef snow and tossed it after not using it for months. Water changes and feeding fish puts enough food for them. I wanted to try coral smoothie and my favorite lfs told me don't buy that you don't need it. . But you can add some just don't over do it.
