Parameters

As I added some sps frags to my tank I started to dose some stuff like seachem fusion 1-2 also some aquavitro chemicals like vibrance ions and fuel so I tested my water last night and these were the results

Ph 8.3 (it's between 8.2 and 8.4 on the red Sea test kit)
Ammonia 0.2
Nitrite 0.05
Nitrate 20
Kh 3.57
Calcium 420
Are they ok?

There isn't any need to dose anything. You need a heavily sps dominant tank to be at the point where one would need to dose as weekly water changes won't keep up.

I did more harm than good when I started dosing a small tank with minimal coral load. As mentioned prior, wcs should replenish what's needed for a healthy system.
