Test the water in your aquarium weekly (and even more frequently when you first set up your aquarium) to ensure optimum water quality. Accurate and easy to use, Tetratest Kits enable you to monitor your aquarium's critical water parameters.
NITRATE TEST KIT:
Nitrate is the end product of biological filtration and the result of decomposition of nitrite. It can also be present in tap water supplies. 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.
Tetra Tetratest Nitrate Kit is an ideal and easy way to test the level of nitrate in your tank.
This kit is suitable for Freshwater (including outdoor ponds), Brackish and Saltwater systems.
