Lithaqua...calcified seaweed

Just setting up first natural tank and been reading the sticky. Will now go ahead and add some nutrients as described. My question is this. As I will be using lithaqua in the tank (very low hardness and TDS) would I need to bother with the small amount of seachem equilibrium? I am thinking the lithaqua,although used primarily as a buffer to raise carbonate hardness, would 'supply' the nutrients and so I would not need it. Tap water is base at 7.5

In my community tank I used bicarbonate of soda / Epsom salt to help raise hardness and pH is 7.8

Just hoping to forego buying yet another product!
