Description:
Tech M Magnesium supplement is a ionically balanced product which will safely raise the magnesium level in any marine system without upsetting the ionic balance of the system. Tech M is very concentrated, containing over 70,000 ppm of cationic magnesium, and is nitrate, phosphate and gluconate free!

Directions:
Important: Shake vigorously immediately prior to use! The preferred method is to test the magnesium level in your aquarium, then add Tech M at the rate of 1 ml per gallon aquarium capacity per day to bring the level to between 1250 and 1350 ppm. This will raise the level by 18.4 ppm per day. As a routine supplement, if not testing, add two teaspoons (2 capfuls or 10 ml) per 50 gallons tank capacity every week in all marine systems.

Considerations for use:
If you have trouble maintaining calcium or buffer level, check to see that the salt mix you are using has seawater level of magnesium. To save money and increase dissolvability, some manufacturers of popular newer salts have included only half the level of magnesium necessary in their sea salt mixes, resulting in low calcium solubility and poor buffering!

Tech M Magnesium supplement will provide the magnesium left out by salt manufacturers or increase the magnesium level in any system. This will provide for easier maintenance of alkalinity (buffering capacity) and calcium level.

Note:
It is normal for this product to form a sediment in the bottle. Shaking before use will suspend this sediment which will dissolve when added to the aquarium.

Contents:
Deionized water containing the following elements (as ions): magnesium, chlorine, sulfur, calcium, potassium, bromine, strontium, boron, fluorine, lithium, rubidium, iodine, iron, molybdenum, zinc, nickel, copper, manganese, vanadium, cesium, cobalt, tungsten, selenium, and chromium.

Precautions:
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! If in eyes, wash with water for 15 minutes. If swallowed or in eyes, call a physician. If on skin, rinse with water. Not for human consumption.

Kent Marine Tech M

I am dosing Tech M to get rid of hair algae. I know it gets rid of byropsis. It remains to see, at what level it will take to get rid of hair algae.

Kent Tech M Magnesium

I am really impressed with this company. I ordered this product on 5/14/15 to be delivered to the UK, unfortunately not available here and was amazed when it arrived today 5/29/15. This store uses the Global Shipping Programme so customs clearance is taken care of. My previous shipment took nearly 3 months, mislaid in customs I believe. I was prepared to wait rather than buy a competitors product locally because having used it before I am very happy with the consistency of the results; it does exactly what it says on the bottle.

It actually works

I have a very mature [25 years], 200 gal reef. I have periodic algae outbreaks which they tell me is normal for tanks over 5 yrs or so.The last one I had was pretty severe so Marine Depot suggested I use a gallon to Mg supplement.Amazingly it worked.I have corals only [one fish- small], of various types both softies and acros. Everything grows well and I have tried just about every remedy known to man but this stuff actually worked. Probably the corals were lowering the calcium content too much.Kenny

Bryopsis

Kent Marine Tech M resolved my increasingly problematic Bryopsis in 3-4 days. I increased the magnesium by 100 ppm per day until it hit about 1650 ppm. All gone.

Kent Tech M

After trying other Mg products to rid my tank of a serious bryopsis problem, I bought the Tech M. Within a week of dosing, no more growth, and 2 weeks later the bryopsis is all gone. Only product on the market that kills that stuff.
