What you need to dose for will depend on what is actually being used by your tank. Obviously it will be your tests that will tell you what needs to be dosed.
For most aquariums, your mag/iodine and often even your calcium/alk
levels can easily be maintained simply through water changes with a quality salt mix.
As with anything in SW
take it slow. Don't add a bunch of new corals etc to your tank all at once. Add a couple and give your tank time to adjust and for you to adjust your maint. habits to the changes.
In general, those are the water parameters to watch though, SG
, Temp, Ph, Ca
, Mag, Iodine (usually don't have to worry about this), Phosphates. Obviously your big 3 as well, Ammonia/Nitrite/Nitrate but you want to keep those down, not up
