Reef Suppliments

I have had my fowler tank up for about 2 months with a clown and dwarf anglefish. Theyre doing great! I was just doing research on adding some soft corals and the suppliments needed are sort of confusing. Do i only need calcium carbonate and magnesium? Or do i need the other additives such as iodine? Any help well apreciated!

If you keep up on water changes with a quality salt mix you wont need any additives at all a good salt mix has everything you need right in it
