Yes. J&L has Brightwell. I think they're carrying Aquaforest too. I know Reef Supplies has Aquaforest...not sure if they have the full line.

With c-balance mag is usually around the 1200-1300 range in my tank (a bit too low for what I like )so I add mag, cheapest solution is going to be the bulk ones in my experience...
I add mag, but really wondering if it is necessary when dosing 2 parts balling method... I also find that in my tank have to add potassium and strontium ...

You are supposed to correct the tank first. Use the BRS calculator to see how much you need to add to bring the tank to the correct levels. Then you use the 2 part equally to maintain.
