Reef Advantage Magnesium™ is a concentrated (80,000 ppm) optimized blend of magnesium, chloride and sulfate salts designed to restore depleted magnesium levels with minimal impact on ionic ratios found in natural seawater. Reef Advantage Magnesium™ does not contain ammonia. This is a common contaminant in all liquid magnesium supplements on the market.

Severely depleted magnesium levels (below 800 mg/L) can lead to lower pH levels and an inability to maintain proper magnesium levels. The most common causes of magnesium deficiency are kalkwasser use, frequent overdosing of a carbonate additive, or low levels in the salt mix itself. Kalkwasser, for example, precipitates magnesium as magnesium hydroxide while excess carbonates precipitate it as magnesium carbonate. In both cases, this means that the magnesium that was present in the water is no longer available. Of the two, magnesium hydroxide and magnesium carbonate, the former is more problematic; it is extremely insoluble.

Once magnesium precipitates as magnesium hydroxide, it never redissolves. The magnesium carbonate will redissolve; however, it does so slowly. So while it goes back into solution, there will be a significant portion of the time when magnesium levels are depleted.
