They are hit and miss. Some coral beauties can't be with anything, others will never bother any coral. Just be prepared to take it out if it proves to not be a reef safe individual.

I would start with those corals and see how they do, especially the frogspawn. While at the LFS see what all they have and if anything stands out to you ask about. Don't take their word for it and buy it then, but at least get a name and come ask us about it.

You may want to move them down, but not necessarily to the bottom. Any coral needs time to adjust to increased lighting. A sudden increase in light can cause bleaching. If you slowly move a coral from the bottom towards the light it will be able to build up the pigment protection it needs for that lighting.
