I use BRS for carbon and gfo as well. And also dosing for Ca, Alk and Mg.

I don't really dose any other trace elements though I have a few kent ones if I ever find need for them.

I also have food from brs such as reef chili, and elos fish food... I love them and so do my fish.

Kalkwasser via ATO.
Ocaisionally I will add iodine (pour it directly on my Xenia).
And add Magnesium when I think I need it. I do not test it.
