Description: In a properly cycled aquarium, nitrite is converted to nitrate and then, if there are areas deprived of oxygen such as in live rock and other filter materials, this nitrate is converted back to nitrite and then transformed into harmless nitrogen gas. If this cycle breaks down then nitrites, which are extremely toxic to fish and invertebrates, can form in high concentration.
Package: 1x Nitrate Test Reagent1 (15ML) 1x Nitrate Test Reagent2 (15ML) 1x Mini Measuring Flask (15ML)
Features: • Many nitrite test kits suffer from interference caused by amines e.g naturally occurring and essential amino acids. This can result in a too low measured value, especially when the nitrite concentration is relatively low. • Because of its unique formulation, the Salifert Test Kit does not suffer from amine interference, and offers full colour development within one minute. Also, the colour is very intense making the detection of even minute traces of nitrite easy. • Sufficien

Ammonia and ammonium should be rapidly converted by aerobic nitrification into nitrite and then nitrate and finally into nitrogen gas
If this does not happen then either the aquarium is not fully matured or there is a problem with the tank’s biological system, which can be caused by an excessive biological loading being placed on the system
The Salifert ammonia test kit measures the total amount of ammonia and ammonium quickly and accurately
Copper is often used as a treatment for parasite infested fish and it is essential that the correct
Tap water can also be naturally high in copper and it is therefore advisable to test for this on a regular basis.
The Salifert test kit offers a very sensitive and accurate test for measuring dissolved or weakly chelated copper with a pH of 7.5-9
The pH value in a marine tank has a major impact on the growth of corals and calcareous algae and on many biological processes. The pH should not be allowed to fluctuate more than approx. 0.2 units during any 24 hour period and should preferably be kept above 8.2. If the pH is too low then the cause may be a too low alkalinity and/or a build up of carbon dioxide caused by insufficient aeration. Sufficient for 50 tests.
For marine water only
