$12.99
A too high nitrate concentration can result in unwanted algae-growth and these might irritate corals in their neighborhood. Nitrate as such also retards coral growth. The nitrate concentration in a proper functioning reef aquarium should preferably...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
$9.37
Nitrite is a substance that is toxic to fish and invertebrates. It is a misconception that once a tank is through its cycle (first 3 or 4 weeks) that nitrite has vanished. Salifert Nitrite test kits are an accurate and easy way to measure the level...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
$11.32
Salifert Oxygen Profi-Test Corals and marine fish require very high levels of oxygen concentration because of the low solubility of oxygen in salt water so it is very important to regularly test the level of oxygen present. This test can be used for...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
$8.18
The Salifert pH test kit is sufficiently accurate to monitor pH fluctuations of approx 0.2 pH units. Our KH + pH Buffer allows fast and efficient correction of alkalinity. Approx. 50 tests per kit. Range pH 7.4 - 8.6
