Salifert Magnesium Test Kit Overview
  • Magnesium is present in natural seawater in a fairly high concentration (1300 - 1400 mg/L).
  • Magnesium is an essential part of chlorophyll, which is necessary for photosynthesis.
  • Without photosynthesis plants, including algae and the corals, would not be able to live.
  • Maintaining a correct magnesium concentration is very important, and is indirectly responsible for fast coral and calcareous algae growth by virtue of making the maintenance of correct calcium and alkalinity figures possible.
  • Magnesium is depleted by algae and is also depleted by the use of excessive Kalkwasser.
  • There are also certain brands of salt, which have very low magnesium content. Use of such a salt will result in permanent problems with calcium and carbonate hardness values.
  • The Salifert magnesium test is very straight forward, and does not suffer from calcium and strontium interferences when within certain bounds.
  • It measures in sufficient accurate steps of 30 mg/L with a sharp color change.
  • The kit can perform approx. 50 measurements.
