AQUARIUM WATER TEST KIT
SERA - Sera aqua-test box This professional set consists of different water tests for salt aquarists and pond owners. Contains the following tests: pH value (pH) carbonate hardness (KH) ammonium/ammonia (NH4/NH3) nitrite (NO2) nitrate (NO3) phosphate (PO4) copper (Cu) calcium (Ca) and lot more Sera Products.
SEACHEM USA - This kit measures total (NH3 and NH4+) and free ammonia (NH3 only) down to less than 0.05 mg/L and is virtually interference free in marine and fresh water. Free ammonia is the toxic form of ammonia (vs. ionized Ammonia NH4+ which is non-toxic) and thus it is much more important to keep an eye on the level of free ammonia in your system. This kit is based on the same gas exchange technology that is used in the Ammonia Alert and thus is the only kit on the market that can read levels of free ammonia while using ammonia removal products such as Prime, AmGuardand any similar competing products. The other kits (salicylate or Nessler based) determine the total ammonia by raising the pH of the test solution to 12 or greater. At this high pH all ammonia removal products will breakdown and rerelease the ammonia, thus giving you a false ammonia reading and lot more Seachem products.
TETRA - etratest Nitrate and Nitrite Nitrate is the end product of biological filtration and the result of decomposition of nitrite. It can also be present in tap water supplies, especially in areas of high fertilizer run-off. Although virtually non-toxic to fish, nitrate is a key algae nutrient and high concentrations can harm your fish. Nitrate testing is also an indicator of general water quality and filter function; as biological filtration converts ammonia to nitrite and finally to nitrate, other important chemical changes take place in the aquarium. These changes can include the loss of alkalinity (buffering capacity) or the accumulation of phosphate - thus nitrate testing can indicate possible imbalances in other areas without directly testing each one. This kit is suitable for freshwater (including outdoor ponds), brackish, and saltwater systems. Price for Each Test Kit. Nitrate and Nitrite are two seperate test kits. If you need both order Qty 2 and lot more Tetra Products.
