    After 5mths of self imposed no testing.... This evening's test results as follows :

    KH 6.4
    CA 370
    MG 1020

    Can I raise each item individually or will they auto balance when I raise, say the KH only (gradually to 8+) ?

    Advice velcomed

    No wonder my mg level so low...its the TM salt mix !!!

    "Sources of Magnesium in Marine Aquaria

    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. Some artificial salt mixes have been reported to be deficient in magnesium.15 These include Tropic Marin and Seachem. Others have been reported to have a substantial excess, including Coralife.15"

    dose sodium bicarbonate to raise your kh, calcium chloride for cal , magnesium chloride for mg la.
    mg raise 100ppm/day .
    cal can straight up to 400/420.
    kh i up by 1.5 immediately before for a few times without anything happen.
