That purple discosoma is quite prolific. Isolate the rock away from the others. You will have plenty sooner than you like...ha

It looks good , no feeding neccesary! Dont worry it won't take the tank over that quickly. Mine spread slowly . Depends on your tank and how "happy" it is.

Get an alkalinity test and keep your alk at 8.3-9.3. If it won't raise, or stay raised, check your magnesium and calcium...it's a 3-way balance. Any time your 'shroom is annoyed, it's probably the alk.
You'll do fine. Discosomas are so tough, I had 3 survive the cycle: came in on live rock.
