Brightwell Aquatics Magnesion Product Overview:
Brightwell Aquatics Magnesion sizes: 250mL, 500mL, 2L
Magnesium plays a vital role in reef aquaria: it helps maintain calcium and carbonate (composing the majority of measurable alkalinity) concentrations by limiting unwanted inorganic precipitation with each other. In the absence of adequate magnesium ions, calcium and carbonate ions bond rapidly, depleting their concentrations in the system and creating the false impression that heavier supplementation is required to re-establish the desired concentrations. No matter how much calcium is added, its natural seawater concentration of 412 ppm will never be sustained until the magnesium concentration begins to approach 1,290 ppm. Once the balance between calcium and magnesium has been established, subsequent calcium supplementation yields immediate positive results. Keeping magnesium within a range of 1,290-1,320 ppm will maintain the desired balance, and provides enough of the element to reef-building organisms for the formation of aragonite (~0.10% Mg by weight).

Continuum Aquatics Reef Basis Magnesium is a high quality, ionically balanced solution of hydrated magnesium salts designed to safely raise the magnesium level in marine aquariums, providing essential magnesium for support of aragonite formation in corals, assisting in regulation of calcium and alkalinity levels and for other desirable functions. It contains no acetate, gluconates, polygluconates or other unnecessary organics to pollute your aquarium. It is phosphate and nitrate free.
Continuum Aquatics Reef Basis Magnesium sizes: 250mL, 500mL, 2L.
Use in aquarium keeping:
Proper control of magnesium level is imperative for the health and growth of corals as well as maintenance of calcium and buffer levels. Some sea salt mixes are low in magnesium. Continuum recommends that you maintain a magnesium level of between 1,250 and 1,350 mg/L (ppm) for normal reef keeping. This product is also suitable for use by hobbyists who want to raise the magnesium level up to the range of 1,500 to 1,800 mg/L (ppm) for special uses. If you raise the magnesium level that high, be sure to closely monitor the condition of corals and other animals to make sure that they remain healthy and vibrant. Should negative signs such as corals refusing to open, poor coloration etc. be seen, discontinue use and allow the level to decrease until the animals look healthy again.
Directions and protocol:
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 25 US-gallons (100 L) of marine aquarium water 3 to 4 times per week. For best results, measure the magnesium concentration and add as required to maintain the concentration between 1,250 and 1,350 mg/L (ppm).
Dosing through use of a drip system is a superior method of addition. Do not mix with buffers or alkalinity supplements prior to addition. You may mix it with strontium, calcium, and many other supplements. See our website for compatibility of supplements. Determine the amount of magnesium consumption during the time it takes add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Reef‰ۢBasis Magnesium to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by 0.0533. (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by 10 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x 10 x 0.0533 which equals 26.65 ml of Reef‰ۢBasis Magnesium or about 5-1/4 capfuls).
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains magnesium salts, if ingested drink water, call a poison control center immediately! If in eyes flush with water.
Calcium, magnesium, strontium and carbonate are the basic foundation elements of coral skeletons. All of these elements need to be available in balanced proportions for positive coral health and growth. Reef Foundation ABC+ is a blend of all of the foundation elements with the addition of potassium, bromine and iodine in the unique ratio required by corals.
Red Sea's Reef Foundation ABC+ is a uniquely formulated powder supplement containing all of the elements of Foundation A, B & C, plus Red Sea's Coral Colors A & B (potassium, boron, iodine & bromine) formulated in the exact ratio as found in the coral skeleton. Although there are slight differences between the coral species, the mean ratio between these elements is fairly constant. Supplementing all of these elements in a fixed ratio according to the uptake of calcium will ensure an accurate replenishment based on the metabolic demands of the corals.
Reef Foundation ABC+ should be dosed on a daily or weekly basis according to the aquarium type and according to a measured uptake of calcium. Over time an imbalance may occur between the foundation elements. If dosing daily, you should test all of the foundation elements weekly and make adjustments with the individual A, B & C supplements. If dosing weekly you should test all of the foundation elements monthly and make adjustments with the individual A, B & C supplements.
Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC+ Supplement (Ca/Sr/KH/Mg/K/Br) sizes: 1kg, 5kg
1g will raise the Ca level of 100 liters (25 gal) by 1.5ppm
Red Sea Reef Foundation C Supplement (Mg) sizes: 500mL, 1L
Concentration: 1ml will raise the Mg level of 100 liters (25gal) by 1ppm.
