Freshwater pH Test Instructions:

Why Test pH?
pH is the measure of acidity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral. A pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. Maintaining the aquarium at the proper pH ensures optimal water quality.

Testing Tips:
This test kit measures pH from 6.0 to 7.6. Certain freshwater fish thrive at a pH above 7.5. Live-bearers, goldfish and African cichlids prefer a pH of 7.5. When keeping fish in this pH range, use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals High Range pH Test Kit.

Directions for Testing pH:
  • Read thoroughly before testing. Do not allow Test Solutions to get into aquarium.
  • To remove childproof safety cap: With one hand, push red tab left with thumb while unscrewing cap with free hand.
    • Fill a clean test tube with 5 ml of water to be tested (to the line on the tube).
    • Add three drops of Indicator Solution, holding dropper bottle upside down in a completely vertical position to assure uniformity of drops.
    • Cap the test tube and invert tube several times to mix solution. Do not hold finger over open end of tube, as this may affect the test results.
    • Determine the pH reading by matching the color of the solution against those on the pH Color Chart. The tube should be viewed against the white area beside the color chart. Color comparisons are best made in a well-lit area. The closest match indicates the pH of the water sample. Rinse the test tube with clean water after each use.
Recommended pH Levels:
A pH of 7.0 is ideal when keeping a community aquarium containing a variety of tropical fish. Goldfish should be kept in their own aquarium and prefer a pH of 7.5. Many Amazonian fish, like angelfish and neon tetras, prefer a pH of 6.5 to 6.8. Mollies and swordtails thrive at pH 7.2 to 7.5. To raise or lower the pH of a freshwater aquarium, use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals pH UP or pH Down, following the directions on the container. Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Proper pH 6.5, 7.0, and 7.5 powders automatically adjust pH to the preset level.

Frequency of Testing:
The pH should be tested weekly, since natural materials in the aquarium (such as fish waste and decaying food) can cause pH changes. The minimum pH reading for this kit is 6.0 and the maximum is 7.6. Under extreme water conditions, readings below the minimum will read 6.0 and above the maximum will read 7.6. pH adjustments outside the range of this kit will not show any changes until the pH of the aquarium water is within the range of this kit.

DANGER:
  • CORROSIVE C IRRITANT Xi
  • pH UP contains sodium hydroxide
  • Causes burns
  • Keep locked up and out of the reach of children
  • In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water (at least 15 minutes) and seek medical advice
  • After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing
  • Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection
  • In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show label where possible)
pH Down:
  • Irritating to eyes and skin
  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water (for 15 minutes) and seek medical advice
  • After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing
  • Never add water to this product.

Comments: If you are into planted aquariums, API Professional Kit is the way to go. For testing tap water and freshwater in your tank,this kit is the easiest, quickest,most accurate and least expensive test kit on the market. It includes everything the Freshwater Master Kit contains, but also the GH/KH tests it should have contained. Many of the test can be used for either freshwater or saltwater testing and therefore little is wasted. Comes with a nice box,good stand and accessories. P.S.-Very good kit for my saltwater FO tank!

Comments: The system works great. It is easy to use based on the supplied number of test tubes and the plastic tray base. I can quickly run all test and have the results all lined up to record on the supplied test record pad (nice touch). The box is a bit large but keeps all of the test supplied in one place.

Comments: I was suprised how much stuff this kit had. Comes with test vials, a syringe to measure out correct water sample, water test results slips to record your measurements, and instruction booklets. I pulled out the flimy plasctic stand that is inside the box that holds the test solutions and vials and placed the tests solution and vials, booklets, cards and syring in the box b ecause I have so much water test solution for different parameters, this box made for a convienent place to go for all my water test needs. very handy. The price is decent for what you get. The tests are easy to read.
