How can you be sure if magnesium levels are deficient?

There are a couple of indications; severely depleted levels of magnesium (below 800 mg/L) can cause depressed pH levels and an inability to maintain proper calcium levels (more on ionic imbalance).The best way to tell if you need a magnesium supplement, though, is to test for it using a magnesium test kit such as Seachem’s Reef Status™: Magensium & Carbonate and Borate Alkalinity.

If you’ve determined your magnesium levels are low, supplementation with ions™ is necessary. ions™ restores magnesium by employing the most concentrated (90,000 mg/L), fully dissolved magnesium and does so without adding any ammonia. Other liquid magnesium supplements inherently contain ammonia because the magnesium chloride used in their production contains ammonia. This is a result of the mechanisms for deriving and/or producing magnesium chloride. aquavitro™ has gone to considerable lengths to remove this contaminant and a proprietary process makes ions™ the first and only liquid magnesium supplement that does not contain ammonia.

Beginner:

Use one inner capful (7 ml) for every 125 L (35 gallons*) twice a week.

Check magnesium once a week and adjust amount or frequency accordingly.

Advanced:

Check magnesium level, then follow addition regimen above until magnesium is adjusted to 1200-1350 mg/L.

Each 7 mL/125 L (35 gallons*) will raise magnesium by about 5 mg/L.

Quantity or frequency can be adjusted, but do not exceed 35 mL/125 L (35 gallons*) per day.

Thereafter, use as required to maintain magnesium.

Orders over £30 are Delivered FREE!

Providing none of the items in your order require pallet delivery or are excluded from delivery promotions, we will give you free standard delivery. You can still upgrade this service if you wish, and will only pay the difference.

 

Pallet Deliveries are different.

For items that have to be sent by insured pallet or other special delivery, these are excluded from the standard delivery offer and instead follow a different system. Pallet deliveries are split into 2 tiers: tier 1 and tier 2. Pallet deliveries take 2-4 working days and cannot be tracked.

 

For pallet deliveries we will contact you to confirm the delivery address and delivery day before releasing the order.

 

Please note that the pallet delivery service is a drop at kerb only service, the drivers are not insured to handle goods into homes and you are required to dispose of the pallet.

 

Pallet Tier 1

This tier is for solo tanks and cabinets, or other solo high weight products that we can't send by a normal courier. We subsidies the majority of the true delivery cost for these items to offer the best value we can. The shipping cost for these is calculated at checkout.

 

Pallet Tier 2

New for 2020! We are proud to announce we now offer FREE mainland UK pallet deliveries for Pallet Tier 2. Pallet Tier 2 is for the larger full tank and cabinet sets, such as the beautiful Juwel Rio, Lido, Trigon and Vision ranges.
