coral supplements

Should I be putting magnesium and other trace elements into my tank for my corals or is it unnessacery.

I'm not sure on this any help would be great.

Only add supplements that you are testing for. Don't really need to add magnesium unless you have a lot of corals. Your salt should contain sufficient amounts of trace elements.
