having to dose mg daily?

hey reefers. i know ALK and CA has to be dose daily but my tank takes up ALOT of mg.

 

I've been dosing 8.3ml alk, 3.3ml Ca, and 3.3ml of Mg, DAILY. i just dosed 10ml of Mg and steadily raise to where i need it.

 

Tested with Elo's test kit/ bought 2 months ago

 

My params are 9 Dkh / 450Ca/ and 1150 Mg

 

i just tested Mg and its at 1150, i calculated all the big 3 acouple weeks ago and dosed accordingly, and my Mg was steady at 1350. so now something's been taking up all the Mg.

 

my Tank,

 

18G tank/12g sump = 30 g total

 

SPS tank with very little lps and zoas

 

1 6line wrasse

2 False Perc clowns

good amount of CuC

Cheato's

 

Also im getting small dots of Coraline Growth on the back of the tank. and some showing on the rocks, and majority of my rocks has Green Coraline, (not algae)

Double check with another test kit. If your mag actually was that low, your alk and calcium wouldn't be that high

I would double check anyway. You may have gotten a bad batch of reagent

If you buy another kit, get the same brand. If you get different results, make sure you contact the company. Should get a free one.
