The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Mg(H2O)6](C9H7N4O2S)2, contains one-half of a [Mg(H2O)6]2+ cation ( symmetry) and one uncoordinated 2-[(1-phenyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl)sulfanyl]acetate anion. The MgII cation is coordinated by six water molecules, exhibiting a slightly distorted octahedral coordination. A two-dimensional network parallel to (001) is formed via extensive hydrogen-bonding interactions involving the water molecules as donors and the tetrazole N and carboxylate O atoms of the anion as acceptors. The shortest distance between two adjacent parallel benzene rings is 3.315 (2) Å. The dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the tetrazole ring is 40.98 (2)°.
