  • <B>Salifert - Ammonia NH4</B> (50Tests)
    Ammonia and ammonium are substances which should be converted rapidly into nitrite followed by nitrate and nitrogen gas.
    If this does not happen then the aquarium is not fully cycled or biological processes are not proceeding as they should.

  • <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 - Nitrate NO3</B> (60Tests)
    Nitrate testing
    When an aquarium has insufficient regions deprived of oxygen (= anaerobic zones) or denitrification proceeds incompletely then nitrate will build-up.
    A too high nitrate concentration can result in unwanted algae-growth and these might irritate corals in their neighborhood.
    Nitrate as such also retards coral growth.
    The nitrate concentration in a proper functioning reef aquarium should preferably be lower than 1 mg/L. Fish-only aquariums would usually show much higher nitrate concentrations.
    Most test kits use a procedure in which a certain part of nitrate is converted chemically into nitrite and is measured as such.
    Once again, just as with nitrite testing, amine interference has a major impact on the measured value. If such an interference occurs concentrations much lower than actual will be measured.

  • <B>Salifert - PH Profi Test</B> (50Tests)
    The pH value can have 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. 0.3 units during 24 hours and should preferably be kept between 8.0 and 8.2.

    If the pH is too low then the cause may be a too low alkalinity and/or insufficient aeration.

  • <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..
