    We've looked at alkalinity and calcium the last two days, so let's finish it off with Magnesium. At what level do you keep your magnesium?

    Are you using the Salinity salt mix?

    That's correct. I've had good results with it. I rarely ever do water changes, so all I need is a simple salt that puts my water chemistry in the middle of the ballpark, 9 dKH, 420 Cal, 1350 Mag, and I make adjustments from there.

    Thanks for your time.
    I used it for about a year when it first came out and it was a solid mix. It always came into Seachem's specs on the buckets.
    My local reef shop just kept jacking up the price on it and you can't buy it online.

    Lol,

    More than 50% keep it above 1350, which is the highest recommended level. Why?
