Salt and conditoners

Hey all I am currently using instant ocean reef crystals reef salt as my salt mix and I also add Fluval Sea Trace 3 Ions and Fluval Sea Iodine once a week. I was told that I no longer need to add them since I am using the reef mix. Any advice? TIA

test your levels and adjust accordingly.

It's unlikely that you actually need those supplements in the tank.

You don't need any of that stuff. PWC`s are all you need unless you have a heavy load of SPS corals and I mean heavy.
