    If you do your water change regularly you can use Epson salt that you can buy at Longs to suppliment your Mg.

    IMO I would mix mag flake and epson so you get a balanced load. RHF recommends this as well.

    Do you buy the mag flake online? Is there a local source? Yes...I know this question is asked constantly...
