Magnesium is of great importance to marine aquarists however most aquarists are relatively unaware of this importance. Magnesium, by virtue of ion paring, is a major player in the chemical structure and activity of seawater. The presence of magnesium interferes with the precipitation of calcium carbonate and allows calcium and carbonate to maintain levels in seawater above their saturation points. in addition to ion paring, magnesium also poisons the development and growth of crystals of calcium carbonate, which considerably slows down the precipitation of calcium carbonate. Magnesium has a great effect on the buffering systems in seawater and levels much higher or much lower than that of natural seawater can cause things like calcium and alkalinity difficulties, caking and cementation of calcareous media, and rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate. At a salinity of 35 ppt under typical marine aquarium parameters, a normal magnesium level is about 1285 ppm, possibly varying between 1250 to 1380 ppm.
*Deep Ocean Magnesium Powder uses pure and anhydrous FCC grade Magnesium ion.
*Deep Ocean Magnesium Powder provides an ion much needed for coral skeletons, much like calcium, strontium and carbonates. Unbeknownst to most hobbyists not only do stony corals use magnesium but fish bacteria and even coralline algae use bio available magnesium. Often times cheaper salts tend to have extremely high levels of magnesium, as low magnesium levels can cause PH levels to plummet as well as interfere with available calcium levels.
*Deep Ocean Magnesium Powder is a fully available magnesium available ion and much like Deep Ocean Magnesium Powder it dissolves crystal clear you know it’s available for your reef inhabitants.
*Intensive boost to your coral´s color and growth.
*For all marine aquariums.
*Prevents deficiency symptoms of Magnesium ion.
*Free of nitrate & phosphate.
*Free of harmful chelators.
*Anhydrous Formula. (Free of Crystal Water)
Basic: Dissolve 2.5 grams of Deep Ocean Coral Reef Magnesium Powder per 20 US-gallons of aquarium water in 250 ml of fresh water; add every other day or as needed to maintain the magnesium concentration within a range of 1.286 - 1.350 ppm.
Advanced: Create a stock solution by dissolving 20 grams of Deep Ocean Coral Reef Magnesium Powder in 250 ml 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 5.4 ppm.
Reference: Each gram of Deep Ocean Coral Reef Magnesium Powder will increase the [Mg2+] in 1L of water by 255.277 ppm.
