Water Heater Anode

I have a Suburban SW6D water heater in my A Frame. Suburban sells both an aluminum and a magnesium anode for the water heater. Which should I use and why?

I like magnesium better. They are relatively inexpensive. Buy two that way when you remove it and decide it needs to be replaced, you have one on hand and can complete the job in the moment.
