ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- pH Marine
The pH value or acid value indicates how acidic or alkaline water is.
It is a measure of the concentration of the acidic or alkaline components in a hydrous solution. Pure water will react neutral and has a pH-value of 7.00 . If the acidic components are predominant, the pH value will drop below 7.00. If the basic components are predominant, the pH-value will rise about 7.00.
The SaltWater aquarium pH-value is considered between 8.1 and 8.4 pH which is the value found in natural seawater.
Many organisms will react with high sensitivity to very small variations of the pH-value. An overly drop or rise should be avoided absolutely. Most of the organisms reacts sensitively (or die) on a pH-level, which is constantly far away from the requested value as well as on gravid modifications. Therefore, a regular check on the pH-level is elementary necessary to note and to avoid any negative development.
ELOS AquaTest pH, as well as all the other colorimetric test kit of this line, grants high accuracy thanks to several procedures. The precision of a colorimetric test kit is, in fact, strictly related to the precision of the color chart. In these test we use "RealColor" technology, an accurate system to calibrate the colors chart compared to the reagents, on each production batch. In combination with the use of NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples, this grants high accuracy and constant test results.
ELOS AquaTest pH M shows a range of 8.1 / 9.0 pH-units.$14.99
ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- General Hardness GH
General Hardness is primarily the concentration of the Calcium (Ca++) and Magnesium (Mg++), the two most important metal cations with more than single positive charge.
If the amount of these salts is low, then the water is called soft.
When their amount is higher, the water is called hard.
Total hardness is normally given in German degrees (dHø), whereby 1 dHø is equal to 10 mg/Lt dissolved Calcium oxide. The concentration of these salts inside the water effect the biological functions of plants and fishes. The optimal value for the General Hardness depends on the species of fish and plants. Where many African and South East Asian species fluorish in relatively hard water, South American ones may neeed soft water. By the way, if a range of hardness of 3 to 16 dHø is accepted, a range of 4 to 10 dHø is considered to be ideal.$14.99

ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- Nitrate
The Biological filtration is a method that uses naturally occurring nitrifying bacteria to detoxify nitrogenous wastes. One type of bacteria (Nitrosomonas spp.) converts ammonia to nitrite while another naturally occurring bacteria (Nitrobacter spp.) converts the nitrite into a far less harmful form of nitrogen waste: nitrate.
Nitrate is the final stage of the nitrification process. Many invertebrates, unlike fish, are not tolerable to high nitrate concentrations. As a result, it is extremely important to make sure that nitrate levels do not reach high levels.$26.99
ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- Calcium
Calcium is the primary building block of corals, calms, calcareous algae and many other organism that we grow in our aquarium. Without adequate supplies of calcium these organism will not flourish and most eventually waste away and die.
The ideal value of Calcium in the aquarium is:
- for the seawater aquarium 450 mg/Lt
- for the planted freshwater aquarium 100 mg/Lt
Because of the importance of calcium, it is necessary to keep inside our marine aquariums, the proper Calcium Level, testing it with an accurate test kit.$27.99
