My nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, ph, gh, and kh are all perfect or near perfect. I'm just wondering about the stuff I can't test for....

If you have hard ,alkaline water from the tap that suits the fishes needs, then you prolly don't need to use the cichlid salts that raise the pH and hardness.
If not, I would use one of the cichlid substrates designed for maintaing the proper hardness that the fish require.
Google info on water parameters for the fish you intend to keep to see what they're needs are.
