ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- CALCIUMCalcium is the primary building block of corals, clams, calcareous algae and many other organisms that we grow in our aquarium. Without adequate supplies of calcium these organism will not flourish and will eventually waste away and die. The ideal value of calcium for a marine aquarium is between 380-450 mg/Lt (ppm) and for planted freshwater aquarium 100 mg/Lt (ppm). Because of the importance of calcium it is necessary to keep the proper calcium level inside our marine aquariums by testing it with an accurate test kit. ELOS AquaTest Ca, as well as all the other titrimetric test kit of this line, offer very high accuracy thanks to several procedures including: calibrated lab droppers with consistent and predefined drops of 0.03 ml each, NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples to validate reagents and strict stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch available. HIGHLIGHTS: High quality system: one powder reagent and two liquids! Standard sensibility: 25 ppm of Calcium ions. NIST validation: each batch is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples. "C" reagent available as separate sales unit. High number of test per kit: up to 40-50 test depending on Ca level. "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

Salifert pH Profi-Test 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 A low pH can be corrected by improving aeration and by increasing the alkalinity. The Salifert Test Kit is sufficiently accurate to monitor minor pH fluctuations and is scaled from pH 7.4-8.7. Sufficient for 50 tests. For marine water only.Warning!Keep out of reach of childrenInstructions: Add with syringe 5ml of water in the test tube. Add with the dropping bottle pH 4 drops and swirl gently for 10 seconds. Put the open test tube on the white part of the color chart. View from above and read the corresponding pH value. It might be possible that the color is in between two different ones, then the pH value is as well in between the two corresponding values.

Brightwell Aquatics 1 fl. oz. CoralAmino Free Form Amino Acid Supplement for Corals, 30 mL
Manufacturer: Deepwater Aquatics Distribution
Brand: Brightwell Aquatics
Brightwell Aquatics CoralAminÅ is a free-form complex of amino acids in the ratios found within tissues of stony corals. The formulation is based upon extensive research conducted on tropical coral reefs by oceanographic researchers. It encourages aggressive coral tissue growth and coloration.
Manufacturer: Aquarium Pharmaceuticals
Effective for both fresh & saltwater aquariums. High levels of nitrate are a food source for unwanted algae & indicate poor water quality & health problems for fish. Tests nitrate levels from 0 to 160 ppm.
Salifert Silicate Profi-Test Silicate occurs in tap water or purified water when the reverse osmosis or de ionizing unit is not functioning properly. Silicate can result in diatom bloom and can block some essential trace elements such as vanadium and molybdenum. The Salifert Test kit for silicate is a very fast, sensitive and accurate test, with two scales: an ultra low scale which is particularly useful for marine water and a high scale which is suitable for freshwater environments. Sufficient for 60 tests. Can be used for marine, fresh and garden pond waterErroneous results might be obtained when the carbonate hardness is higher that 20dKH. This corresponds to an alkalinity of 7meq/l. Normally the carbonate hardness is well below the above mentioned values.Warning!KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of contact with the skin, wash with plenty of water. In case of contact with eyes, was heyes with plenty of water and consult a physician immediately.Si-1 and Si-2 are acidic and Si-3 contains a reducing agent. Not for consumption.Instructions: Add with syringe 10ml of water in the test vial (low resolution mode 1ml) Add to this 4 drops of Si-1 (low resolution 2 drops) reagent and swirl the test vial gently for 10 seconds. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Add to this 4 drops of Si-2 (low resolution 2 drops) reagent and swirl the contents gently for 30 seconds. Add to this 1 level scoop of Si-3 reagent and swirl the test vial for 20 seconds. Place the open test vial on top of the color chart on a part of the chart which is white and compare the colors looking from above. Read the corresponding dissolved silicon content. An intermediate color corresponds to an intermediate dissolved silicon content.Note: If the low resolution mode was used then multiply the values on the color chart by 10.The silicate values are in ppm (mg/l) siliconoxide. To convert the values from ppm siliconoxide to ppm silicon multiply the value by 2.1.Avoid using tap water or
Salifert Copper Profi-Test Copper is often used as a treatment for parasite infested fish and it is essential that the correct concentration is used as too high levels can be toxic to marine fish and invertebrates. 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. Lasts for several copper cures or provides sufficient for up to 50 tests on tap or aquarium water as a routine check. Ca be used for marine, fresh and garden pond water Strongly chelated copper will only be partly or not at all detected.Warning!KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Not for consumption.Instructions: Add 2ml of water in the test vial. Add 5 drops of the Cu reagent and swirl gently for 5 seconds. Allow it to stand for 10 minutes. Some copper medications might use strongly bound copper and would require a waiting time of 20 minutes. In case of doubt compare the value after 10 and 20 minutes of waiting. The highest value should be noted. To obtain the copper concentration hold the test vial in front of you. Place the white part of the color chart firmly against the side of the test vial and look from the opposite side.A blue tinge lighter than the 0.1ppm value corresponds to approximately 0.05ppm.A color in between two color bars indicates a copper value in between those two values.Copper Table ml`s Added Copper Concentration in ppm 1 >=1.0 2 0.50 3 0.33 4 0.25 5 0.20 10 0.10 15 0.07 20 0.05
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. Sufficient for up to 50 tests and can detect 0.5 ppm of total ammonia easily.
