Mostly zoanthids and some LPS,there were a few SPS higher up in the tank but not acroporas and the like.

Yes,once there are a number of growing stony corals you will want to look into a additive. At first I used KH buffer and calcium supplements but I now use a 3 part dosing system that I mix myself for better control.

I will look into that a little more. So for inhabitants i was thinking a randalls goby and pistol shrimp, boxer shrimp, 3 pepperment shrimp, Royal gramma, some snails & hermits, court jester goby, than maybe a fairy wrasse. Or maybe a pair of clown and the goby pisyol shrimp pair, and all the same invertebrate. What do u think??

Multiple gobies in a small tank can some times be trouble,they can get territorial depending on the species.I would stick with just one or a pair.

Well i read that. But they r hole different sub group, the randalls is a shrimp goby and the court jester different. But i rethought the stock. 1 possum wrasse, 1 royal gramma, 1 randalls shrimp goby, 1 pistol shrimp, 1 court jester goby, 3 pepperment shrimp, 1 boxer shrimp, 3 hermits, 2 turbo snails (not the larger mexicans), 3-4 nassarius snails, i can get a red scooter blenny that eats pellets and frozen foods so probally 1 of those, and maybe a blue tuxedo urchin.
