I should probly test .. haven’t tested mag in 4 months haha
What salt do you use ?
That should be above 1250 and below 1400. 1500 is safe, but I hear some inverts hate high magnesium.
I saw Instant ocean mag level is sometimes low 1200

I use instant ocean , however I don’t do water changes lol I dose trace elements / alk / cal / mg just haven’t tested mg
Once I test all parameters im gonna start dosing all for reef to keep them steady. I hear sometimes IO mixes low like 900

IO can be all over the place a bit , AFR is a good idea! I couldn’t get used to it, found myself still dosing cal / alk to adjust so I thought why I am dosing afr

Yup, i forget. I haven't had coralline grow for the last year...... That might explain some stuff....
