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®, Safe™, AmGuard™ and 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.
Nutrafin Master Test Kit, Contains 10 Test Parameters
The Nutrafin Master Test Kit is suitable for fresh and saltwater aquariums. It includes 10 test parameters to help make sure you are providing a proper living environment for your fish and plants including tests for: Phosphate, Calcium, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, pH High Range, pH Low Range, Carbonate Hardness, General Hardness and Iron. The Nutrafin Master Kit is provided in a durable plastic case for extended service life and reagent protection. The kit also includes: 5 glass test tubes with caps, 2 pipettes, 1 spoon and 4 instruction booklets, which is everything you will need to test your aquarium's environment.
Salifert test kits are the epitome of accuracy and precision. Their wide range of available tests have all been designed to detect the smallest traces of certain elements, without interference from other chemicals within the water. Simply put, these are the best test kits you can buy- hands down. The sharp, contrasting color changes make results easy to read so there's no second guessing. Trust your aquarium to Salifert. This calcium test will detect the smallest fluctuations of calcium in saltwater reef aquariums so you can be sure your corals and other invertebrates are receiving an adequate amount for their general health and growth. This item not available for backorders.
Nitrate Profi-Test When there are insufficient areas of a tank which are deprived of oxygen (anaerobic zones) or denitrification is not taking place properly, nitrate will build up. This can also happen in an aquarium where the biological loading on the system is causing an imbalance e.g. if there is excessive livestock for the aquarium volume or over feeding is occurring. The build up of nitrate can result in unwanted algae growth and the slowing down of coral growth. The nitrate concentration in a reef aquarium should be lower than 1 mg/L, although fish only aquariums would usually have a higher concentration. Just as with nitrite, many nitrate test kits are prone to amine interference which can make the levels of nitrate appear much lower than they actually are. The Salifert test kit does not suffer from such interference and gives accurate and quick results with a total testing time of less than 3 minutes. The test kit's range goes from a very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.2 - 100 mg/L as total nitrate). Sufficient for 50 tests. This test offers two ranges:Low range: 0.2 - 10 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.Medium range: 2 - 100 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.Clean test vial and scoop after use. Store this kit in a dry place.Warning!KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
The MPR - Magnetic Probe Rack was designed specifically for the Apex and will hold our larger diameter temperature probe, pH probe, ORP probe, and salinity probe. It's made from acrylic and with strong neodymium magnets it will hold on tight even on sumps that are 1/2" thick!
Hanna Instruments HI 713-25 Reagents Phosphate for HI 713 Checker HC (Pack of 25)
The HI 713-25 is a set of 25 phosphate reagent packets for use with the HI 713 phosphate meter. A reaction between the reagent and phosphate in a sample causes a blue tint to appear, which is measured by the meter. The meter uses an Adaptation of the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 20th edition, Ascorbic Acid method to determine the amount of phosphate present. Hanna Instruments manufactures a wide variety of analytical instrumentation, including pH meters, multi-parameter meters, electrodes, chemical reagents, and buffer solutions. Founded in 1978, Hanna is headquartered in Woonsocket, RI, with subsidiaries in 32 countries. Hanna Instruments holds many firsts in the field of analytical instrumentation, including a pH electrode with a built-in temperature sensor, an electronic pocket-sized pH tester, and a replaceable electrode pH pocket tester. To ensure the quality of its products, Hanna is a vertically integrated manufacturer and does not subcontract any part of its manufacturing. What’s in the Box? 25 packets of reagent
