My suggestion is don't try and feed them and let them be. This will be easier to maintain nutrients in tank and make things easier for you. No foul water issues for you as a newbie. Keep it simple. They do great without feedings. Photosynthesis is all they need.

Wait for feeding etc down the road if you must once you get the hang of things. Keeping nice and easy for now.

Happy reefing.

Are you keeping fish in this tank? If not low nutrients will be a problem if not fed. Make sure you have test kits for alk and calcium at the least because stability is going to be important especially for the torch.

light and flow placement is the most important. Do some reading on each coral' preferences so you have a good idea of where to place them.
