I read the words "CalMag" used in varying ways. Eg., "Run CalMag", "Signs of CalMag".. Read a few pages of this thread and could not find any references. Anyone care to give my a basic understanding.. My PPM is around 170, so hence the question.

Calcium
Magnesium
Some people mistakenly quote a “calmag” def. what they are saying is you need calcium and magnesium. Calmag is an actual product sold to help with calcium and magnesium def.

The "Calmag" stuff can be frustrating because they are two separate problems that far too many people treat with a single solution. Most people actually have magnesium deficiency when they say they're having "calmag" issues-a large proportion of the US population has a pretty high calcium content in their tap water. Many times, adding "Calmag" into the mix will make the problem worse by adding in more calcium than magnesium and actually locking out mg further. Better to figure out what your exact deficiency is and target it with exactly what your plant needs. I HATE calmag.
