    I know, Adam must be taking care of his friends.  I was in there last Saturday and there we're 6 people standing around, I would think 2 or 3 per shift would be sufficient to run a store of that size.

    i tested my magnesium level and its at 960.
    i need to find that dosing calculator over on reef central, the test kit says not to raise the mag level more than .25 a day.

    and reccomended levels for magnesium is 3x calcium level.

    so if reccomended calcium is 450 i need to get it up to 1350 so it will take 16 days to reach that level. wow.

    im wondering what the dosing calc will tell me to add each day to raise it .25.

    anyone want to give it a shot and see what you get from the calculator?

    First 450 is ok but I think 420 to 430 is better. 3x calcium is a general rule for magnesium but if you got to 1300 to 1325 that would be really good.

    You can raise magnesium by 100ppm per day...so you really only need to do 1/3 of the total recomended dosage for 3 days and then retest....

    Hope this helps...
