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)°.
