  • Notes

    • 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.
