The calculator is a super place to start on getting a baseline idea but keep in mind that not all tanks are the same as we all have different plants, ferts, lighting, etc. so that I keep the calculators as a guide more than a firm answer and approach the whole question of how much in kind of a slow fashion. I start on the small side and adjust upward from there.

Hi @Orichid123,

Do your plants show signs of an Mg deficiency? I do not advocate adding nutrients that may not be required. Do you have a picture you could post?

Epsom salt is MgSO4.7H2O. You'll find that on the calculator.
