An easy safer way to raise the SG is to top off with saltwater instead of fresh. Mix it the same SG as your tank so it is gradual. Test before and after each top off so you can keep an eye on the SG.

I really like your rock work.

To raise mag just 10 ppm, you need a considerable amount of Magnesium. Mag Chloride can be expensive so people typically mix chloride with mag sulfate. If you are asking about what Aquarium branded product I use, I can't speak to that. You'll have to figure that out on your own.

Kalk will raise pH, but Mag will not, at least not directly. I dont dose kalk, only alk cal mag.
