What minerals? I really have no experience at all
I suggest getting BRS calcium chloride, magnesium chloride and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda).
So no kalk?
This would be your easiest and cheapest solution for upping your parameters.
Also you can go to there site and look at the reef calculator for dosing amounts.
I still dose this way and have a clam and sps everything is all good.
A lot of people new to the hobby get hung up in thinking they need to dose all kinds of things...all too often they dump too much stuff in their tanks and actually make things worse. A good rule in this hobby is if you can't/don't test for it, don't add it. A lot of things we dose can really throw your water chemistry out of whack, or even be toxic at higher levels...so basically if you have not tested your water and know you have a "need" for something don't add it. Beyond that until you get a really heavily stocked system routine water changes will most likely replenish most things adequately anyway.
All the way.
