what do you guys dose your tanks with to help the corals grow. i've tried spectra vital and for the money i'm not really impressed. somepeople have said iodine but i've gotten mixed responses about that so i didn't really want to try that. so what i was wondering was if there was anything besides just normal water changes that could help my corals?

I dose kalkwasser nightly and do about 10% tank volume water change per week. The water change replenishes any trace elements that are lacking and adds them in the proper amounts, while temoving the water insures there is no build up of trace elements. I add buffer as needed to maintain ALK, and I haven't had to use any yet
