Proper Magnesium Levels?

About a week ago, I transferred my Biocube 29 into a 40 gallon. I just bought a Red Sea Reef Foundation test kit (ALK, CA, MAG). The Alkalinity is at 9.8, Magnesium is over 1500 and Calcium is at 350.

I'd just work on bringing the calcium up. While the magnesium is high, if nothing is stressing, I wouldn't worry about that too much. It will come down on its own over time.

I dosed calcium yesterday and checked it today and it was at 450. I didn't check the magnesium yet.
