Would you suggest getting the Victron BMV712, if you have 3000C Pylontech Batteries?

Just wondering if I should get the Victron bmv712 to access my state of charge or is it possible to connect my Pylontech batteries to my Cerbo GX and it’s gives the exact same information? If it’s possible to measure Soc without BMV712. Would it be more accurate with the BMV712?

It is possible and recommended(!) to connect the battery to the GX device.

A BMV/SmartShunt is not needed.

You don't need another BMS/BMV system...Pylontech has its own.
