they are all in check
but ever since i started dosing magnesium is when it happened so it's very weird because it is in check

Did you add the magnesium supplement all at once? It's best to add supplements slowly using a dosing pump or a slow drip method. If you could give us the actual parameters rather than "all in check" it may enable us to give you better advice.

What supplement did you use?

How big is your tank and how long has it been set up? Are you dosing anything else?

+1 on specific water parameters for everything that you are testing for. Any additional information will be helpful.

Please list all of your water parameters. What kind magnesium supplement did you use? How much did you dose?
