- 2 Part Magnesium Mix Aquarium Supplement (Discontinued) - Bulk Reef Supply
Why does BRS recommend this?
The Pre-Portioned 2 Part Magnesium Mix is one of the easiest ways to supplement magnesium for 2 part dosing. The mixing of 5 cups Magnesium Chloride to 3 cups Magnesium Sulfate is already done for you keeping your measuring cups in the kitchen and virtually no mess.
Simply just cut the corner of the bag, and pour into a 1-gallon container. Then top the container off with RODI water and let dissolve for 24 hours prior to use.
Tip: Maintaining proper magnesium levels will help prevent calcium and alkalinity from precipitating which makes maintaining these levels easier as well.
One bag mixes with water to create a gallon of solution.
This mix of magnesium chloride and sulfate is designed to be used in conjunction with the two-part dosing system as part of standard parameter maintenance.
Maintaining proper magnesium levels will help prevent calcium and alkalinity from precipitating which makes maintaining these levels easier as well.
Superior product! By Christina on 10/31/2017Christina would recommend this product to a friendI’ve used other supplements to try to raise magnesium with no luck. I had to use way more solution with much less effect that was just used up right away ... it takes very little of this solution to raise magnesium significantly! I use this in a doser on my 85 gallon mixed Reef. It is so easy to use. In an attempt to save a little money in the long run I just ordered the separate components to the mix but it is the same high quality magnesium.
If you are just starting to dose I definitely recommend this as it’s easy and you have a gallon to work with that should last a while.
This stuff is strong By lisa on 10/24/2017lisa would recommend this product to a friendI love it. This magnesium can save you a lot of money. I dos it once a week and my level stays 1450
good results, easy to use By Bruce on 7/2/2017Bruce would recommend this product to a friendI used to by the individual components but they would get old and clump and then be hard to use and measure. This is easy and doesn't hurt the budget. I use BRS 2 part on a 90 gal packed with sps and this gallon mix will last for months so it doesn't make sense to buy bigger amounts anyway...get great results too!
Switched from ESV B-ionic By Duromega on 3/14/2017Duromega would recommend this product to a friendI was a little bit worry about switching from ESV I was worried about concentration of the product, actually it works and mixes pretty well
8.99 vs 28.99 at my LFS made me switch.
Easy to mix, Corals look good By Kevin on 3/3/2017Kevin would recommend this product to a friendI recently bought a magnesium test kit and found out my magnesium was low. So I purchased this 2 part magnesium product. It came quickly, it was easy to mix, and my corals seem to like it.
Great By Les on 1/18/2017Les would recommend this product to a friendDoes what it should.
Love it!!! By Rick on 10/23/2016Rick would recommend this product to a friendVery easy and fast! Mixed well and no measuring! Does not have particles at the bottom of the jug after mixing. Great product!
Make sure to use a funnel By Justin on 10/21/2016Justin would recommend this product to a friendI highly recommend that you use a funnel. I had a 1 gallon jug that took me ~10 minutes to get all of this magnesium salts into with my flimsy paper funnel and a pen to push it through.
I'm sure that if I had a nice plastic funnel it would have been much easier to get the bag of mix into the jug.
I had no problems getting all of it to dissolve; it dissolved completely within minutes but I did leave it overnight like the instructions said to be safe.
It worked well, raising my mg levels the amount I expected it to.
Very Satisfied! By Shane on 9/12/2016Shane would recommend this product to a friendReasonably priced, mixes very well, and does what its supposed to do. What more do you want. Switching to this product from now on. Thanks BRS for yet another great product!
Good Product - Easy to Prepare By Lawrence on 9/7/2016Lawrence would recommend this product to a friendUnless you are having to dose several tanks, this is a great product. It is easy to use, no premixing and performs as advertised. It is cheap and quick to prepare. Highly recommend unless you need to buy the magnesium supplements 5 gallon buckets. Highly recommend.
Great product By Michael on 9/2/2016Michael would recommend this product to a friendVery easy to use and dissolves cleanly!
Simple By Scott S on 8/23/2016Scott S would recommend this product to a friendIf you are dosing and use magnesium then this is the way to go. It is already measured out and ready to go. It just works, plain and simple.

How many ppm should i bring up at a time?
So I have a couple of these and they are leaking some sort of clear fluid. The specific gravity of the liquid is something akin to baby oil or the like. It is odorless and colorless (dunno if it is tasteless am not going to lick the floor to find out). Any ideas what the mystery fluid is and will it effect the final mixture since whatever it is, isn't going to be in the final mix?
If the powder Magnesium is having liquid coming out it is related to the magnesium pulling humidity out of the air and resorting to a liquid state, this will not affect the performance of the powder and the remaining powder can still be used. If the solution is mixed and the mr. chili jug is leaking this would be an issue we can help out with on the container. Let us know via email or our support line and we will be more than willing to help!
Why has this been discontinued and what should I use with my two part?
Thank you for reaching out.
We have updated our 2 part chemicals to new packaging and higher grade materials. You would want to use the following Mag Mix for 2 part:
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Have a great day!
Once mixed and stored air tight-what's the shelf life?
What's the shelf life of the sealed mix?
Found a gallon container in storage and some misc mix sealed up from a couple years ago so just wanting to confirm.
Short of something contaminating it, it will basically last until the end of time :-) The magnesium(s) in particular are very hygroscopic though so don't be surprised if it has turned hard (or slushy depending on which product you have). Thats nothing to worry about though.
