Loaded question. Answer is maybe. We are looking for high output on the unit and bulbs as normal t5 isn't enough light for corals.

The salt mix is all you need to keep soft corals happy. There is no need to supplement at all unless in a heavily stocked sps tank. Whatever salt you pick will be fine for soft corals as long a you keep up with water changes weekly.

My frag tank takes t5ho so I'll have to upgrade my bulbs probably but do you think I should just upgrade to those par 38 reef bulbs? Or just stick with t5?

How big is the frag tank? Par38s don't have real great coverage
