I'd highly recommend you rely on regular water changes to ensure those chemical are up to snuff. It'll provide all you need.

Try not to get into a habit of adding chemicals you cannot test for to see it you've added too much or too little. Bad idea.

i agree on the chemicals, or lack thereof. i have kept thriving sps dominated reefs with just weekly water changes. i've never added iodine or strontium to a tank since i've been in the hobby.

Imo all tank work differently. U have to see what works for u. It really is what works for you. I have had sps tanks, lps tanks, and soft coral tanks and the chemicals have worked great for me. I do my water changes every two weeks instead of every week.

+1 for no chemicals, try to keep it as natural as possible. as for xenia i have a few stalks of pom pom on a single rock on the sand bed seperated (island style) so itll only grow on that tank, though one stalk is being sneaky and growing on the sandbed, but ill attach it to the island when i do my PWC
