Addding Victron LifePO4 battery & Smart BMS 12/200 to existing charger/inverter system?

Hello! Looking for some help iwth a marine setup. I am swapping out my old AGM house batteries for a new Victron lithium battery with a Smart BMS 12/200 (since I have a starter battery and alternator). I want to keep my Magnasine Inverter/Charger and have upgraded to the new ME-ARC remote which has a lithium option.

Questions:

  1. I was told I need a Cyrix Li-Charge to tell the BMS when to stop charging? Is that the case?
  2. Will the ME-ARC be able to tell the charger when to shut off appropriately?
  3. Am I missing anything?

Thank you for any help you can provide!
