Welcome to the forum and the hobby!

It might be good to look at a few of these links before you start adding fish and inverts.

Curing live rock? I didn't even know it was sick! - Aquarium Advice

What were you wanting to keep in the tank?

The coral warfare isn't really an issue until you get large amounts of coral. I like the dancing shrimp but sadly it can end up eating some soft corals.

Most beginner corals like mushroom and zoanthids don't necessarily need food as most of their nutrients are from light, but feeding them can help them grow faster.
