29 gallon reef
15 gallon sump (approximately 10 gallons water, for a total volume of 39 gallons)
Been running for about 8 weeks.
: 130 ppm
(or 7.5 dKH
, or 2.68 meq/l)
calcium: 450 ppm
MAGNESIUM: 270 PPM
Magnesium at 270 ppm
, tested using a Salifert test kit. From what I understand, it should be 1250-1350. So, I've got a ways to go. I've got Kent 'Tech-M' magnesium supplement. The directions say to add 1 ml per gallon per day, raising the magnesium 18.3 ppm
per day. At that rate, it'll take 56 days to get the level to 1300 ppm
. Is there any easier way to raise the level safely?
