too much coral?

Ok I have a 36 gallon reef tank.
Currently I have these corals:
Anthelia waving hand coral
Pulsating xenia
Toadstool leather
Cabbage leather
Kenya tree
Duncan
Frogspawn
Candy cane coral
Mushroom

And I have the opportunity Wednesday to buy these corals for $50:
Kenya tree
Devils hand leather
Cabbage leather
Palythoas
Blastomussa
Dragons eye polyp
Neon green candy cane coral
Pulsating xenia
Birdsnest

Do you think this is too much?

that's a good deal
how big are they ?
I'd buy the ones that don't fit lol
I have tons in my 37 bow front myself some how always find room for more
but yes I have a second tank now so now I have lots of empty space and look for extras

I just frag them up as they grow and sell them off if theres too much
I'm a coral junkie why you think I joined AA LOL

They are not real big neon candy, blasto and dragons eye are all single head
Poly is 2 head
Not sure about the rest but yeah I wasn't gonna buy the cabbage and Kenya cause I have them but he said if I bought them both for $10 he would throw in the birds nest
I'm just not sure if I'm ready for a sps. 9 frags at my lfs would run me $150 if I got them out of the frag tank. So $50 is a heck of a deal

Here is the pic he sent me he said all the frags on the rack

I just wasn't sure if adding too much coral at once would hurt.

Funny thing is, is most everyone said I can't keep much of anything under power compacts and so far everything I have is doing great

its not easy thats for sure it's like a trial and error kind of thing lol
I have issues keeping certain corals in my 37 bow front with the HO t-5s X4 work great for zoos but found the leds work best on the SPS so now I use both

It glows real bright green under the blues if I had a filter for my camera I would have taken a pict so you could see
the camera just don't pick it up without a filter
