Save your money. IMO Focus on getting your Calcium, alkalinity and magnesium straight thru PWC`s and you should be OK.

Yup... calcium between 380 and 420, alkalinity between 8-12 dKh, and pH between 8.0 and 8.4 - and you should have coralline in time. (Assuming you have something with coralline on it to start with - you need some to get it growing.)
