To many corals?

I know you shouldn't add to many fish to your aquarium. Is it the same way for corals, especially in a biocube 14?

I have a biocube 14for over 4 months. All water parameters are good. Do 2 30% wc a week--since it will be getting warmer and will be spending more time outside, it will probably be once a week. All lighting and filters are stock with one 240 powerhead. I think things are going pretty well.

My purchases include a rock with about 5 red mushrooms, one toadstool, about 5 different zoads, one blue mushroom, xenia, very small Kenya tree.

I also have a clean up crew that includes about 10 snails, 5 small hermits, 1 emarald crab, 1 blue damsel, 2 feather dusters.

Am I over doing it, even though I only have one fish (blue damsel). I like my biocube 14 to look like a really nice reef---lots of corals. Can I add a frogspawn, or is that way to much?

I think you'll be fine personally. Most of your corals are relatively peaceful and the frogspawn will be your only aggressive coral. That said, I don't think the frogspawn will react to anything you currently have so you should be good.

I'm a big fan of going slow on fish and loading up on corals over a period of time. Between the photosynthesis happening and the constant water filtration from the corals, I find the systems I've set up this way settle out much quicker.
