What Suppliments ( if any) do you use?

Just curious to see what everyone uses on a relativly regular basis for suppliments for their reef.

right now I have calc, mag, and a alk booster. I've laso been told it wouldnt hurt and might even help using a 'trace elements' suppliment.

Do you guys use a trace elements or any other supplement?

I currently use Reef Crystals and keep my salinity about 1.025-1.026

Thanks!

I use baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) for alk, calcium chloride (DowFlake ice melt) for calcium and for mag I use Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) and MagFlakes (magnesium chloride). Nothing else except weekly 20% water changes with Red Sea salt.
