Wouldn't a low Mg level affect the pocilliporas and acros, as well?

I will check it, though.

You could probably use fiberglass resin. It's thick and should be waterproof when completely cured. Just mix the sand into the resin/catalyst and "paint" it onto the form you've made. Should work.

Which casting resin did you use to encase the magnets? It didn't stick to the "mold"? It just popped out?

Currently, I've got mine set for 40sec on and 20sec off. With my other powerheads and skimmer returns, I've got some pretty random flow. So far, the corals seem to appreciate it .

I agree with Krylon paint. I've had some in my tank for 6+ years without any problems.

Portland Type II cement for agrocrete rocks is another.
