Aquasoil additives

So i plan on setting up a 10 gal and 15gal with ADA aquasoil for OEBT and CRS. I've never used this soil before, but I read that people add sustrate additives at the bottom of the tank for better water quality, minerals, etc. Like some of the products shown here: http://www.adana-usa.com/index.php?m...cPath=76_12_24

Is this necessary? Recommended? Any experience or tips?

Just wondering if i should invest in such products, or leave the soil as is. Thanks in advance

I watched amano do a live tank set up, and he didn't use anything under the substrate. He didnt even use ada tools, lol.

Yeah lol . I don't think the additives are necessary, just wondering if it is "worth it"
