The only way to know for sure, whether or not to dose, is to periodically test your parameters. Do your water changes, test for nitrate, phosphate, calcium, alkalinity and magnesium as a minimum and based on those results you will know what needs to be adjusted by dosing.

If you want stony corals, there is no way to get a clear answer on what to dose unless you know for certain what is in your water. Coral is not the only thing that reduces available elements in your system. Coraline, calcium carbonate precipitation can impact your element levels independently of coral stocking.
