Unless heavily stocked I wouldn't supplement anything until you see how it reacts to your tank.... may not even need to

+1 routine water changes usually replenishes the trace elements for your tank. given that its not heavily stocked.

oh and if it hasnt been covered make sure its reef salt. brand may very but reef salt will have those elements in the mix.

Thanks for the input. Is there any other testing I need to do on top of the normal for corals besides calcium, and magnesium? If it says supplement iodine should I be testing for that too? or just do reg water changes and watch how the corals do.
