How long have the tank been running? I would not add anymore fish to the tank.

If your water parameters is in check, nitrites=0, Ammonia=0, Nitrates below 20ppm then you could look at below list.

Good beginner soft corals include all mushrooms, most leather corals, Zooanthids, star polyps, Anthelia. These corals prefer medium to high flow (My own observations)

Good hard corals to begin with is Open Brains(Tragophylia), moon rock (Favia/Favites), Fox Coral. These corals will do well in low to medium flow.

SPS, you could try the common Montipora's (I find them a little less challenging than Acros) You should ensure you have enough flow for these, as they require high flow
