Seachem SeaChem Reef Status Magnesium Testing (includs tests for Borate and Carbonate)

Four kits in one! Tests for magnesium through a titration based procedure in increments of 12.5 mg/L. Tests for carbonate alkalinity, borate alkalinity and total alkalinity in 0.1 meq/L resolution through a titration based procedure. The kit resolves borate from carbonate and, along with magnesium, this presents a clear picture of the tank`s buffering capacity as well as a very reliable determination of the critical carbonate content required for coral and coralline growth.
  • 75 titration tests each for borate, carbonate & magnesium
  • directly measures magnesium
  • resolves carbonate and borate
  • interference free
  • includes reference validation
  • designed for the reef aquarist

REVIEW
A bit complicated at first, all magnesium tests are. they require multiply steps. I like the kit and the box, it also does a high quality test for alkalinity. it does alot of tests. If magnesium gets low then your calcium evaporates. BAD

REVIEW
Anyone who states they dont have time to run a magnesium test shouldnt be into reef keeping to begin with. I have used this mg test exclusively since I have been into Reef Keeping and it is by far the most accurate one out there. If someone says otherwise they are not performing the test correctly....Read More
