What should i be adding to get my corals to grow

well i have 2 soft leather in my tank. i just got a CA test kit and found that my CA was like 425 or so. what should i be adding to the water to make them grow faster and open more. or is there nothing i really can do. i know you can add trace minerals to the water but i do not know where you can get a test kit for them.

A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.

Light and good water quality and they will grow pretty quick.

water changes should take care of any trace elements and things of that sort
