B Ionic buffer System Help

If I use B Ionic calcium buffer do I still have to add iodine and essential elements for my corals? I feed reef roids and oyster eggs to keep them happy, just stuck on the essential elements and or any other supplements.
Thanks in advance for all replies

Ca, Alk and Mg should be all you need to supplement if necessary. TEST before dosing anything. All other trace elements should be replenished by regular Partial Water Changes (10%- 1x/week or 20% - every other week).

So should I put the B Ionic in everyday ?
My levels in testing are great. I think the only issue is my PH it's in the high 7 range.
Having troubles getting it to 8.2
May try surface water increase
Thanks
