Hey guys, now that I've added a few SPS corals to my tank and plan to add more I was thinking about getting one of the coral supplements such as amino acids, vitamins, etc. to help boost color while also helping them grow and boost their health. Do these supplements really do much or are they just an extra expense in most cases?

they're just an added cost in MOST cases. usually corals are fed enough via light and residual food from the food you feed your fish as well as their poop.
That's what I imagined...with so many of them out there though I just wanted to see what some more experienced reefers thought though
