Suppliments & additives

Is it really necessary to add suppliments if you do not have corals in your tank? With my 1st salt tank I was told to add C-balance to help my liverock. (for the coraline algae I guess)

i think you would still want to dose calcium to grow coraline algae uless you don't want to grow it.

Most use Kalk to dose calcium and other additives as needed,, I have been using Oceans Blend which is a compilation of 70 trace elements as well as calcium and alk supplement. It is an all in one 2 part solution. I add it everyday to my tank and have seen some great results, however, I will suggest that, if you choose to go this way, you will be adding more and more of trace elements that will not be used up and therefore require the use of carbon and regular water changes to keep the levels at bay. I am saying this because it causes debates and I don't want to start one..
I will let some of the Kalk users comment on their usage now...
