So with just one zoa frag and one purple blade gorgonian and with my coraline just starting my calcium demand wouldnt be that high Right? But as I add more coral I need to monitor it more closely and then decide on additives???

carey, the 2 little fishies stuff is good, but it can get a little on the expensive side. i would suggest saving 2 milk jugs, and making your own using BRS's stuff.

one zoa frag and a small gorgonian colony is not going to be very demanding.
i've kept large tanks just doing water changes- no added calcium, alk, or mag. bear in mind i did 50 gallons weekly on a 400 gallon system though.
it was loaded with large ( softball and basketball sized) sps colonies.
only when i topped that off with a football sized clam did i see rapid declines in calcium and alk, and then i went to the bulk additives.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
