Increasing my magnesium

In one of my early posts i displayed my aquarium levels and addressed that the magnesium was low. I set to increasing this with the use of a fluid additive, and later discovered that this only increased it very slowly and i would need loads to achieve the desired effect. I know have purchased 1.2Kg of seachem advantage magnesium in the form of crystals. I will be adding 10 grams per day over the next 20 days to achieve a desired magnesium level of about 1300ppm following the manufactures instructions. I will post my results in the next couple of weeks. Here is a great resource for reef calculators
