Dosing-supplements ?

Hey folks, I'm already dosing for calcium and kh. Is there a general all purpose item you use when you do water changes?

You just started this tank didn't you? If your using a quality reef grade salt you shouldn't need to dose. How much are your #s dropping?

They aren't, just wondered if there is a maintenance bacteria. I always used one on me FW tanks.

Yep, tested the other day. All was well. Don't remember what the readings were off the top of my head.

Wise man once told me to never dose things you do not test for. Reef salt in the water changes you do is all you need

A tank that size you shouldn't be dumping any supplements in. How many and what kind of corals do you have?
