  • Magnesium is vital to a successful thriving reef aquarium. All reef aquarium hobbyists should be monitoring this vital element, to ensure you are keeping your reef aquarium at proper levels.
  • Magnesium is important to corals, because corals need magnesium in order to successfully utilize calcium.
  • The obvious primary source of magnesium in aquaria is the artificial or natural seawater used to set up the aquarium, and with which any water changes are performed, you can successfully check your magnesium levels with the Elos Aqua Magnesium Test Kit.

Magnesium (Mg) is present in a high quantity (1.300/1.350 ppm) in natural seawater. Contrary to its (not only quantitative) significance, this element was ignored as an important parameter of the marine aquarium for a long time.

In contrast to that we know today that Magnesium creates a remarkable improvement in the growth of calcareous algae and also has a positive influence on the growth of invertebrates and macro algae.

The ideal value of Magnesium in the aquarium is:
- for the seawater aquarium 1100-1300 mg/Lt

  • High quality system: one powder reagent and two liquids!
  • Standard sensibility: 100 ppm of Magnesium ions.
  • NIST validation: each batch is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples "C" reagent available as separate sales unit
  • High number of test per kit: up to 40 test (with a standard Mg level of 1100 ppm)
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.
