Magnesium not dropping

I raised my mag levels about two months ago in both my tanks (a 60gall and 20gall) to just over 1600 to help combat some algae problems using Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate and Epsom Salts, both tanks are now joined together corals are thriving, 10 large clumps of Halimda, I dose Kalkwasser using a ph meter and Bicarbonate of Soda to maintain Ca and Alk..

Mag is still testing over 1600, any ideas why this is not depleting over this two month time period

Tank 1 60gall
Tank 2 25gall
Sump 25gall
ph 8.4 - 8.5
Alk 10-11
Salinity 1.025
Nitrate 0.0
Phosphate 0.02
