Are you dosing mag? If so, stop. Let it come down on its own and keep doing WC's.

Is your salt mix high in mag? May need to mix the bucket a bit to distribute settled components?

Does high magnesium cause problems? I ask out of ignorance, as I'm on the low end in magnesium now, and fighting upwards. I know if it's low, the calcium and carbonate can precipitate out, but my understanding was that magnesium wasn't really used directly.
