  • <B>Salifert - Calcium Ca</B> (50-100Tests)
    Calcium is a major constituent of calcareous algae, skeletal material of hard corals and the skeletal needles of soft/leather corals. Calcium also fulfills many biological functions.
    Quite often a too low calcium concentration retards coral and calcareous algae growth.

    NSW contains 400 – 450 mg/L calcium. Which is also the value we should strive for. For a stable aquarium environment the fluctuation in calcium content should preferably not more than approx. 15 mg/L. This automatically means that the calcium test should be able to monitor comparable fluctuations.

  • <B>Salifert - Iodine I2</B> (40Tests)
    Iodine is present in NSW (Natural seawater) in a very low concentration (0.06 mg/L or 0.06 ppm).

  • <B>Salifert - Nitrite NO2 </B> (60tests)
    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.
    Many nitrite test kits suffer from interference by amines (such as naturally occurring and essential amino acids) resulting in a too low measured value especially if the nitrite concentration is relatively low.
    Nitrite is converted to nitrate in properly cycled aquariums. The thus formed nitrate is transformed into harmless nitrogen gas (=denitrification). This happens in areas deprived of oxygen within live rock and miscellaneous filter materials.
    Before it can be transformed to nitrogen gas the nitrate is first converted back to nitrite. When for whatever reason this particular cycle can not be completed, toxic nitrite can be present in significant concentration and readily be detected by test kits that do not suffer from amine interference.

  • <B>Salifert - Silicate Si Test Kit</B> (60Tests)
    Silicate occurs especially in tap water or in purified water when the RO or DI unit is not functioning properly. Silicate not only results in diatom bloom but might also block some essential trace elements such as vanadium and molybdenum.

    Salifert offers a very sensitive and accurate silicate test kit. Silicate content can be decreased by using the granular Phosphate-Killer or the liquid Phosphate-Eliminator. Although both are designed for phosphate removal they have also a very high affinity for silicate.

  • <B>Salifert - Strontium Sr</B> (25Tests)
    Strontium plays an important role by accelerating coral and calcareous algae growth.
    NSW contains approx. 7 – 9 mg/L strontium.
    Since the growth of corals and calcareous algae goes hand in hand with strontium and calcium depletion, depletion of calcium usually means depletion of strontium as well..
