Sarah, probably you measured your mag first---what is the reading. I dosed with Seachem mag for about a month every other day--the reading has been 1350 and stayed there--I haven't dosed mag for at least 3 weeks either and it is staying there. I think once you get the mag up to 1300 it stays there without alot of dosing.

I prefer my substrates stirred but not shaken
