I'm purchasing a 215 gallon tank. It will be a mixed reef with sps, lps, and softies. What chemicals should I dose? I don't know much about the chemistry of things. Is magnesium a necessary additive ?

you got awhile before you need to think about dosing. just focus on getting the tank stable and nutrient under control, get your routine down(like testing, cleaning, water change...est). just water change can get you by for a while before you have enough corals that will use enough alk/ca/mg you need to start looking into dosing.

Calcium and alkalinity are the basics. Some tanks require magnesium now and then. I'd worry about those three parameters the most. This article covers a lot of ground:
