If you have the API kit along with calcium and alkalinity you should be fine. It depends on how much control you want or need. Some people test for more but with those you'll be able to rule out all the basic issues that effect corals except maybe magnesium which you probably don't need.

I think I just figured out what's wrong with my corals, I just caught my emerald crab tearing off GSP POLYPS. I caught him and put him in the sump for tonight, tomorrow he's off to the LFS.
