- ZEOmag Magnesium Granulate (1 kg) - Korallen-Zucht
Why does BRS recommend this?
When using a calcium reactor, the biggest challenge can be keeping the magnesium level stable. Anytime Bulk Reef Supply sets up a calcium reactor the ZEOmag Magnesium Granulate will be added with the calcium reactor media to keep the systems magnesium level as stable as possible.
ZEOmag is a magnesium granulate designed to be used with standard calcium carbonate media in a calcium reactor. It is most commonly mixed with standard calcium reactor media so that the ZEOmag comprises 10-30% of the mix. Primary benefit of using a media like this is it is one of the very few methods of maintaining magnesium levels in the aquarium without adding additional chloride or sulfate.
ZEOmag is a pure source of magnesium granulate with a coarse grain size of 6-12 mm. Ideal addition to any calcium reactor.
Works great By Travis on 1/24/2019Travis would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff works great. I do the 30% ratio, and my corals love it. Like said in another review, it will raise your pH in your reactor. It raised mine to 9.4, for about 24 hours after rinsing it. Definitely helps keep my magnesium in line, and my system is always magnesium deficient without it. From here forward, I don’t think I will ever run my calcium reactor without Zeomag.
Good stuff By Jeff on 12/9/2017Jeff would recommend this product to a friendThis product works well. Just be aware that it will increase the pH within your calcium reactor for 2-3 days. Mine shot up to like 9.5 after adding zeomag, even with a heavy injection of CO2. After about 2-3 days my calcium reactor was acting normally again. Others have had similar experiences on other reefing websites.
Excellent By Mike on 7/3/2016Mike would recommend this product to a friendDoes exactly what it's supposed to do. Mag level is perfect.
zeo mag By james on 12/24/2015james would recommend this product to a friendI use zeomag in my calcium reactor and it keeps my magnesium levels at ideal level
all I use By Fishing911 on 6/1/2015Fishing911 would recommend this product to a friendI have been using it for years. Keeps my acros happy
GREAT!!! By David on 5/8/2013David would recommend this product to a friendI used to use Dolomite, but over time while cleaning my reactor out, i would find the media melted and the dolomite just sank to the bottom. I gave Zeo Mag a try, and its much better. It has a clean white color opposed to dolomites dirty color. Also, it dissolves over time and maintains Magnesium. it might be a few dollars more then dolomite but its thousands of times better.
You wont be disappointed.
What is the recommended ph for dissolving this product
Ideal melting point is a pH around 6.2 to 6.3. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
