When to add coral?
 
So I set up the tank about 3 months ago, it cycled about a month ago, there's an established clean up crew of snails and hermits, some macros, and a fish, parameters seem pretty stable besides my magnesium gets low now and then but that's an easy fix, and I ordered a high output t5 lighting system 48 watt
levels are calcium 440 magnesium 1100 range (low right now), alk 10, ph 8.2, salinity 1.026, phosphate <.3, temp 79F , nitrate <.5 with approx 25 lbs live rock in a 20 gallon long tank.
Only additives are calcium, magnesium, prime, and bacteria (I like to seed it), and stress coat (for adding new fish).
Am I safe to add some zoanthids or mushrooms? No LPS or SPS or anything moderately difficult, just some polyps or mushrooms to start things off

Yeah you should be in the clear for some nice softies and even some hardy LPS. Your levels are not terribly low so just raise em up slowly and you should be good, with softies it is not terribly important to have spot on calcium and mag anyhow.
