I'd like to state, for the record, that I also use Mag-Flake for my "mag flake" needs.

You guys are so mean..
I assume you mean "Why" do we use magflake?

Mag flake is used in conjunction with Epsom salts and RODI water, to make a solution that will raise the MG levels of your tank and keep everything in balance as it does so.

It's all good... I was in a hurry when I posted and looking back it doesn't make much sense to me either.

You can get the bulk products yourself or wait for a group buy when people split up a purchase.
Bulk supplies

They have articles on how to dose Ca and Alk.

You can also visit the reef chemistry for info on how it all works. There's a sticky thread on Randy's 2 part.
