Hi all, I believe I am experiencing a lack of magnesium and I am curious if anybody has a few tips on what will make it easy to add to a planted aquarium? Thank you all info is appreciated!

Epsom salt. Look up dosing so you can dose accordingly for your specific needs.

Magnesium Sulphate MgSO4 Epsom Salt

0.038 grams per 1 US gallon = 1ppm

Usually 10-15ppm is adequate.
Is there a specific brand I should buy? Is it shrimp and snail safe as well?

MgSO4, it does not matter the brand so long as it's pure MgSO4.

Shrimp, snail and fish safe.

GLA.
Amazon.
Brewing supply stores.
Drug stores.

What Chanyi said. Generally the nore expensive it is, the more refined/pure it is, but since it's being used in an aquatic environment those impurities can be more beneficial than not so my personal opinion is the cheaper the better with things like this.
