    In my systems it was not necessary to dose additional Mg, the level was always balanced with the weekly water changes using a well balanced salt. If you keep the level in the range of 1250 – 1300 mg it would be ideal. If the level does drop and if you are sure your test kit result is correct you can use the Mg component additional. Also check if the salt mix you use has a adequate concentratin.

    With weekly water changes, will magnesium be stable? Now I am adding enough quantity. But I will stop and watch if it goes down. I will continue with Fm later I will see the option to do my own ALK and CA balling. My English is basic but I think I understood the link that has happened to me.
    ​​​Sometimes I make changes with sea water but the salinity is 1028, normally in my tank it is 1027
    Thanks

    The cheapest way is usually to just use chemicals, you can find some more information over here:

    Just leave out the Mg solution, the trace elements and the NaCl free salt.

    Doing regular water changes is also necessary (weekly 10 – 15%).

    I will not put more traces, only balling, is there any brand of balling hat you recommend?

    It is not recommended to use the trace elements or the NaCl free salt additional as both do add massive trace elements which are to much for a nutrient poor system. Result is a darker tissue and a leak of coloration.

    started a topic Balling

    Balling

    I'm using the fauna marin balling with his traces, should I continue using the traces until I start using the zeovit color products or should I remove them now?
