Yes, take some out, you shouldn't need the whole bag in that size tank.
Looks good!

You can keep a small reef,but as others stated you need to keep close eye on it .I would also say do a 50% water change weekly.Did 3 gallon for two years that way.https://youtu.be/mQGNQDpJNFE

For when your corals grow faster than the trace elements in your was. In that small of a tank you will never need to use those unless you have tons of acropora/sps which I don't reccomend for a beginner/such a small tank.
