value By Traci on 4/7/13Traci would recommend this product to a friendhave tried other mag additives, this gives the best results with minimal amounts
Very good product, cost effect By matthew on 1/13/13matthew would recommend this product to a friendI've been using this product for a couple years with good results. Instructions are easy and the BRS reef calculator makes dosing this product so easy. Using the BRS calculator and Bubble Magus doser with this product is basically a "set it and forget it" type of deal, and I test magnesium a couple times per week to double check this. This product is so much cheaper than other bottled liquid magnesium products if you don't mind mixing the solution up yourself (which is very easy).
Good Product By David on 11/28/12David would recommend this product to a friendBest price I found online, Thanks BRS.
I started dosing my tank and it had 1100ppm Magnesium.
Now it's up I got it up to 1400 ppm now.
Just make sure to order both mix solutions.

Magnesium By Chicago Coral Banks on 5/7/12Chicago Coral Banks would recommend this product to a friendGreat product, easy to use and works great with Soda Ash and Calcium! Great price as well!
3 Months of Use - Worked Well! By Mohammad on 4/20/12Mohammad would recommend this product to a friendMy magnesium was around 1150 and I got up to around 1410 with no problem!!! I used the calculator here at BRS to figure out how much to add, then I slowly brought up my level over 2-3 weeks. I know this was not recommended but I ONLY used this product to bring up my magnesium level, I did not do the 2 part mixture that was described in the video.
Best Mg suppliment By Mark on 4/18/12Mark would recommend this product to a friendGreat supplement for increasing Mg. Just refer to the "reef calculator" for dosing recommendations
Great product By Rich on 2/7/12Rich would recommend this product to a friendDissolves easily, nice packaging, great value
GREAT VALUE! By Darrell on 1/30/12Darrell would recommend this product to a friendmixes crystal clear and fully disolves with magnesium sulfate. best choice in performance and value by far for raising Mg in a reef tank. It would cost a 100 more to maintain the magnesium in my tank by buying namebrand solutions since you get so little for so much money.

Hello, I saw the vídeos, but Im still not clear on how much water I need to add? , to the mix of 5 cups of mag chl. And 3 cups of mag sulf.
Does the water need to be hot in order to dissolve the product?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Alejandro,
If you are mixing up two part that is exactly what you would do for the magnesium solution. The water can be room temperature, it does not have to be hot.

what is the difference between the magnesium chloride and the magnesium sulfate?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jacob,
They are chemically different. For an aquarium you want to use a combination of both. If you use two part you want to mix 5cup magnesium chloride and 3 cups of magnesium sulfate in 1 gallon of water. If you don't use two part then it would be 7.25 cups magnesium chloride and .75cups magnesium sulfate in 1g of water.
This helps keep the chloride to sulfate ratio as close to natural seawater as possible without resulting in a buildup of chloride or sulfate.

How much does a 1/2 gallon of the two part mix make of the magnesium?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Gene,
For the two part recipe 1 gallon of magnesium solution calls for 5 cups of magnesium chloride and 3 cups of magnesium sulfate. 1/2 gallon of magnesium chloride is 8 cups, so the 1/2g container would be enough for 1 gallon of magnesium solution with about 3 cups leftover.

I saw on one of the videos, that if using Kalkwasser to use far less Magnesium Salfate. Is this still a good practice to do and if so why? Just courious why so much less Salfate when using Kalk. According to most everything I read, Mg should be a faily stable element and need rarely adjusted, yet I'm always chasing it to 1300ish. So I'm wondering it its because of the reduced Salfate addition. I may switch to 2 part in time, I've always had good luck with Kalk in the past.
Thanks and keep up the good work
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Brian,
Great question, a lot of people get confused by this.
It is correct that you would use less magnesium sulfate when using kalk or a calcium reactor compared to two part. You would want to mix a gallon of solution at a ratio of 7.25 cups magnesium chloride to .75 cups of magnesium sulfate.
What you are trying to do here is keep the sulfate to chloride ratio as close as you can to natural seawater. When using two part you are dosing calcium chloride, which increases the ratio of chloride in the tank. So on the magnesium recipe for two part you increase the amount of sulfate to offset that, so you use 5 cup of magnesium chloride and 3 cups of magnesium sulfate.
