The water data sheet for Minneapolis indicates a maximum, minimum, & average
Mg of 6.3, 2.2, and 3.3ppm  respectively.  I do a 50% water change weekly
(for the most part).  Is it reasonable to think that is enough Mg that I
could eliminate the Epsom salts?

Next up - dry KNO3.  Heck, if this gets any easier (less time) I might have
to spend some time learning to aquascape or set up another tank.  :-))

Thanks for the help,
