Reef specific water testing?

I have the API Master reef test kit it brings Calcium, Carbonate Hardness, Phosphate, Nitrate. I am also just ordering a Magnesium test kit is there any other test that is vital for corals??

That's fine. A pH test is good to do occasionally but it's not needed as often as alk, calcium and mag....if you are dosing.
