hair algae treatment

I've got my magnesium up to 1800 for 2 days and haven't noticed much change. How long does the process take? I used Kent Tech M - took it from 1350 on up.

When attempting to use mag to remove hair algae, it is only Kent that does the trick. There is something in the stuff that does the trick that the others don't use in it.
