Salifert Magnesium Profi-Test

  • Magnesium is present in natural sea water in a fairly high concentration (1350 - 1500 mg/L) and is an essential element of chlorophyll which is necessary for photosynthesis. Without photosynthesis plants, algae and coral would not be able to survive.
  • Magnesium also helps to maintain the correct combination of calcium concentration and alkalinity as it slows down the formation of calcium carbonate which can absorb many important trace elements within the aquarium.
  • Maintaining a correct magnesium concentration is therefore very important and is indirectly responsible for fast coral and calcareous algae growth by making it possible to maintain correct calcium and alkalinity figures.
  • Magnesium is depleted by algae growth and also by the use of excessive kalkwasser or by going far beyond natural calcium, alkalinity and pH values.
  • The Salifert Magnesium Profi-Test is easy to use and accurate with measurements in steps of 30 mg/L.
  • Results are not affected by strontium and calcium interference.
  • Can be used for marine water only.
  • Calcium and strontium will not interfere when their total concentration is between 200 and 650 ppm. This is mostly the case.
  • Up to 50 tests.
Warning!
Keep out of reach of children. Not for consumption.

Great

Works great. Used a red sea Mg test kit prior and no comparison. Easy to read, accurate and equal amounts of reagents so you won't run out of titrant before the other 2

Quality, consistant, accurate

I purchased this kit after using another brand and being disappointed with it. I was happy with the results and had no trouble reading the plunger on the syringe. Make sure not to loose the instructions for this because you WILL need the chart to read the level of Mg. If the reagents were available seperately it would be icing on top but they are not. Not to worry, the price is good and accuracy does not suffer a bit, I found it better than the ELOS.

Not even sure if this works

The directions are unclear and determining the exact amount of Mag based on the location of the plunger is less than exact. This is however the first mag test I have used to maybe they are all like this. Testing mag is a PITA with this test kit.
