  • Salifert pH Test Kit

    Salifert pH Test Kit

    Salifert pH Aquarium Test Kit

    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.
    A low pH can be corrected by improving aeration and by increasing the alkalinity to NSW (Natural seawater) value or upto approx 25% above NSW levels.

    The Salifert pH test kit is sufficiently accurate to monitor pH fluctuations of approx 0.2 pH units. Our KH + pH Buffer allows fast and efficient correction of alkalinity.

    Approx. 50 tests per kit.
    Range pH 7.4 - 8.6.

  • Salifert Nitrite Test Kit

    Salifert Nitrite Test Kit

    Salifert Nitrite Aquarium Test Kit

    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.

  • Salifert KH/Alkalinity Test Kit

    Salifert KH/Alkalinity Test Kit

    Salifert KH/Alkalinity Test Kit

    Calcium alone cannot form the skeletal material of corals and allow calcareous algae to grow. Some other substances are needed as well. 
    A few other constituents are carbonate and bicarbonate. These two substances also have a major impact on the stabilization of the pH in the proper range of 8.1 – 8.4. Such stabilization is also called buffering.
    The total carbonate and bicarbonate concentration is also called carbonate alkalinity or carbonate hardness. 
    The only difference between alkalinity and carbonate hardness is a conversion factor.

  • Salifert Ammonia Test Kit

    Salifert Ammonia Test Kit

    Salifert Ammonia Test Kit

    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.

    The Salifert Ammonia test is very straightforward and measures the sum of toxic ammonia and ammonium in just a few minutes.

    The kit can perform approx. 50 measurements and can detect 0.5 ppm of total ammonia easily.

  • Salifert Phosphate Test Kit

    Salifert Phosphate Test Kit

    Salifert Phosphate Aquarium Test Kit

    Phosphate has several negative effects if present in a too high concentration. First of all undesirable algae growth might result. Making an aquarium an unpleasant sight.
    Phosphate also blocks or retards the growth of corals and calcareous algae. 
    One of the scientific studies shows that a phosphate concentration higher than 0.05 mg/L decreases the growth of calcareous algae by 90%!

    Washing fish food, which is a rich source for phosphates in a sieve after thawing reduces the input of phosphate tremendously. 
    Also avoiding use of phosphate-rich low-grade activated carbon helps keep phosphate levels as low as possible. Checking the activated carbon for phosphate prior to use is therefore highly recommended.

  • Salifert Copper Test Kit

    Salifert Copper Test Kit

    Salifert Copper Test Kit

    Copper is often used as a treatment for parasite infested fish and it is essential that the correct concentration is used as too high levels can be toxic to marine fish and invertebrates. 
    Tap water can also be naturally high in copper and it is therefore advisable to test for this on a regular basis. 

    The Salifert test kit offers a very sensitive and accurate test for measuring dissolved or weakly chelated copper from 0.05mg/L to 2mg/L. 

    Lasts for several copper cures or provides sufficient for up to 50 tests on tap or aquarium water as a routine check. 
    Can be used for marine, fresh and garden pond water.

  • Salifert Nitrate Test Kit

    Salifert Nitrate Test Kit

    Salifert Nitrate Aquarium Test Kit

    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.

  • Salifert Calcium Test Kit

    Salifert Calcium Test Kit

    Salifert Calcium Test Kit

    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.

  • Salifert Magnesium Test Kit

    Salifert Magnesium Test Kit

    Salifert Magnesium Aquarium Test Kit

    Magnesium is present in NSW in a fairly high concentration (1300 - 1400 mg/L). Magnesium is an essential part of chlorophyll, which is necessary for photosynthesis. 
    Without photosynthesis plants, including algae and the corals, which we usually have in our aquariums, would not be able to live.

    Magnesium has another important function since in fact makes maintaining the correct combination of calcium concentration and alkalinity or carbonate hardness possible.
    Maintaining a correct magnesium concentration is therefore very important and is indirectly responsible for fast coral and calcareous algae growth by virtue of making the maintenance of correct calcium and alkalinity figures possible.

  • Salifert Iodine 500 ml.

    Salifert Iodine 500 ml.

    Salifert Iodine 500 ml.

    Corals might require iodine as a de-toxifier, as a protection against uv-radiation and as a natural defense against many parasites.
    Iodine is present in NSW (Natural Sea Water) in a very low concentration (0.06 mg/L or 0.06 ppm).Iodine occurs in NSW as different species. These include iodide, iodate, molecular iodine and hypoiodite.
    Generally when we say iodine we mean one or more iodine species without a clear distinction being made. NSW contains predominantly iodate and to a lesser extent iodide. There is however a misconception among many hobbyists that iodide predominates in NSW. 
    Research by Salifert and universities has proved this to be untrueSalifert's Natural Iodine supplement contains a large portion iodate and also some iodide in similar proportions as NSW. 
    All ingredients are of a pharmaceutical quality or even better. This ensures that no unwanted elements are added to your valuable aquarium.

  • Salifert Potassium Test Kit

    Salifert Potassium Test Kit

    Salifert Potassium Test Kit

    Potassium concentration in natural seawater is approximately 400 ppm. Many aquarists have reported that a low potassium value reduces colors in corals. This can be corrected by increasing the potassium value to the normal natural concentration. Now you can accurately measure this value with the new Salifert Potassium Reef Test kits.

  • Salifert Strontium Test Kit

    Salifert Strontium Test Kit

    Salifert Strontium Aquarium Test Kit

    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.

    It is advisable to maintain a strontium concentration between 5 and 20 mg/L.
    The Salifert strontium test kit detects both ionically free and moderately complexed strontium. Salifert was the first to introduce a strontium test kit.

    Approx. 25 tests per kit.
    Measures in approx. 5 ppm increments.
