I waited a few months after starting the tank to start adding my corals. The live rock I bought came with a bunch of green star polyps on the rocks. After a few months I could see that the GSP was spreading and that my other invertebrates were doing well. This provided me the courage I needed to start investing in corals. It didn’t hurt that someone on FaceBook posted that he had some frags for sale just a few days before pay day. I pretty much took my play money from that paycheck and went straight to his house. An hour later I left with 4 little zip lock bags with corals in them.
