Hey Guys,

I just need another set of eye's on this formula they give for a concentrated Mg dosing Solution. I have a 75 Gallon Total Volume Reef tank with a lot of SPS. Just bought the tank complete and Cal and Mg were low. I have a bubble Magus that will dose every hour but I need reassurance on the level and ML to dose to increase about 40-50ppm a day. I'm going to make 32oz of Solution with 16 teaspoons Magnesion-P. So 75 ml of solution will raise my tank 6.0 ppm. So I need to add 525 ml of that solution per day to raise around 40-42ppm per day? Would that be correct or am I missing something? Seems like a lot... Thoughts?

Next week the BRS stuff will get here and i'll switch to 2 part plus Magnesium dosing....

From Brightwell Instructions: Create a stock solution by dissolving 20 grams (~4 teaspoons) of Magnesion-P in 8-fl. oz. of fresh water (preferably purified); each ml of the solution will increase magnesium concentration (”[Mg2+]”) in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 6.0 ppm. [Reference: Each g of Magnesion-P will increase the [Mg2+] in 1 US-gallon (3.785 L) of water by 114.4 ppm.] If initial [Mg2+] in the aquarium is below 1,288 ppm, add stock sol’n at maximum rate of 10 ml per 20 US-gallons daily until desired [Mg2+] is attained, then dose daily or weekly as needed.
