coral dosing

I have been doing a lot of reading and watching videos and still can't seem to find the right answer. First off, my tank is not even cycled yet, I am just trying to get a head up on the game. That way when the time comes, i will be ready and know what to do.

So here is my question(s)... Would it be right to say that soft corals do not need any dosing as long as you are feeding them and have the correct light, flow and parameters?

Also are there any SPS corals that would not need dosing? I really love and respect corals, but am also trying to make this a more budget and lower maintenance friendly tank. I am hoping to get away with not having to buy extra calcium or whatever else to dose.

Thank you. Curious to see what people have to say.
