Frequent water changes and you shouldn't need any supplement

Constant tank dosing from supplements can lead to build up over time. +1 frequent water changes is key!

You shouldn't need to dose anything unless you have a heavily populated LPS/SPS tank...

Any reason you dose mag daily..... corals typically use very little, and shouldn't require dosing on a regular basis. It's there more to prevent the other two from precipitating out of solution.
