Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: 00412

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bryopsis Product Review by DON S (Posted on 3/17/14)

Comments: 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.

You will need a LOT Product Review by KEVIN HOWE (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I just wanted to chime in with my own experience with the product. I find reading people's thoughts on other products here very helpful. I've been using Instant Ocean salt, which is chronically low in magnesium. While many people don't test for magnesium, it's extremely important to being able to keep high and balanced calcium and alkalinity levels. If you're having problems with getting calcium over 400ppm, low mag is very likely your culprit. IO salt mixes at about 1080ppm when really, mag levels should be over 1200ppm...and preferably in the 1375ppm range. This product does work quite well. I just caution you that you will need a LOT no matter what product you buy. It takes a substantial amount of liquid (or powder) to get back to where you may need to be. It's not that the product isn't as good as others. It'll be the same with them all. Quick example: In powder form, a 200ppm deficiency which is quite common, usually takes about 2lbs of crystals to rectify. To move 300ppm in my case, I'll need just shy of 32oz just to get me back to the starting point, and I'll use it less frequently at that point just to maintain it.

problem algae removal Product Review by LEE REEDY (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: Kent Marine Tech M works very well to kill unwanted bryopsis and hair algae when dosed to raise MG level to 1500-1600 ppm. No impact on other life in my 240 gal sps reef.

Kent products YES! Product Review by LYNN CONFETTILEDBETTER (Posted on 10/28/13)

Comments: Off and on, I have been using Kent products for more than 10 years. I always come back to them because they work really well for my 180 gal. tank. Everything is thriving.

Kent Tech M Product Review by BRADY HALE (Posted on 9/5/13)

Comments: 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.
