This is my first post here on Frag OutPost. I enjoy reading through the forums. I have a 75 gallon aquarium that has been setup for 2 yrs. now. MH lighting, skimmer, maybe 50lbs rock. My aquarium consists of 1 clown, 1 blenny, 1 Xenia, 2" frag toadstool (new addition) and a frag frogspawn, also new addition. Being new to the hobby I'm just beginning to get into the supplements such as iodine, strotnium, alkalinity, calcium, all of which I have started experimenting with. I keep a 5gallon bucket of fresh saltwater and a 5 gallon bucket of fresh ro/di water. Both of which i am using to mix in these supplements. Adding 1ml of each supplement to makeup waters. I do 1 to 2gallon water changes weekly and top off 1 gallon a day. Not sure how to use these supplements. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Since you have mostly soft corals your alkalinity and calcium requirements are not going to be very high. Do you have a sump or refugium? You can add the supplements to your sump or into an area of high flow in the tank. Are you testing for the supplements that you are adding?
