Ok I tested my mag whig came to 900. Now that's really low considering I do 5 gallon waterchanges every sat. Like clockwork but I know it's possible. I'm going to run the test again and if it comes back the same I'm going to dose with seachems reef advantage. Now on the reef calculator it says
dose 228 tsps. This seems like a bit much to me. I know to only dose a little bit like 100 ppm a day. Do you think I will need this much? I'm going to test over span of a week to see what the levels are as I add. Is this a good product?
Thats what I thought randy. I've been using tro Marin pro but my last waterchanges was with reg. Tropic
Marin because I know calc is higher on the regular one. I'm using salifert to test everyting. Like I said I'm going to test again maybe I messed up. I'm also going to test some salt I mix up. Any reason you
can think of why it's
Some folks end up reading the Salifert kits (calcium and alkalinity, especially) backwards, so that when they add a lot of fluid, and are down to just a little bit left, they read that as a low amount of calcium or alkalinity. Same may be true of magnesium testing.
alright my magnesium is 900 i checked again. My other parameters are as follows:
I bought seachem reef advantage magnesium. How much should i add at a daily dose to get it to 1300?
If you are confident it really is that low, the calculator above will show how much to dose to get a 50-100 ppm boost. Do it in increments with a day or so in between doses. It will take a large amount!
Once my mag, alk, and cal are were I want them, should i drip kalk to keep them stable? I made a drip with a one gallon bottle and some r/o parts. My tank evaporates about a gallon a day so i figure ill use it for top off. Ill moniter ph for the first couple weeks when i start using it. Would kalk work this way?
