In order for your fish and aquarium to remain healthy and thrive, the water conditions in your aquarium need to be as close to that of the natural environment as possible.
6 in 1 Water Testing Strips test for the five most important areas:
pH level - measures the acidity or alkalinity of the water in your tank;
Nitrites - caused by the bacterial conversion of ammonia from dead plants, uneaten food and fish waste within the tank;
Nitrates - a by-product of Nitrites in the Nitrogen Cycle of your tank;
Carbonate - adds to the hardness of the water, and is found in tap water;
General Hardness - water hardness is caused by the concentration of metal ions in the water, such as calcium, magnesium and iron;
Chlorine - caused by the antibacterial processes used in tap water.
If levels for any of the above are incorrect it can result in stress, illness and even death for the fish in your tank.
Each strip contains several coloured tabs, for each of the six testing areas, with a results interpreter contained on the bottle.
You should test the water in your aquarium on a weekly basis.Approximate Dimensions (Packaged):
