Elos Aqua Test Kit - Ammonia/Ammonium Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

Keep your aquarium safe from the harmful ammonia and other inorganic nitrogen by continuously monitoring the water quality of your tank. Use an effective test kit that can precisely measure the ammonia level so that you can immediately address the problems as quickly as possible.

Use the Elos Aqua Test Kit from Pet Store to be able to sense the slightest incidence of ammonia in your water. Ideally, aquariums should have zero ammonia in the system. This is particularly difficult to maintain considering that this lethal inorganic nitrogen comes from fish and plant wastes and unconsumed fish food. That is why it is important that a slight indication of ammonia’s presence (up to 0.05 mg/l (ppm) is quickly determined so that the water can be immediately treated.

The ELOS Aqua Test kit contains effective reagents and uses scientific test procedures that can highly sense ammonia and calibrate its level. The red color and other processes, the validation of reagents with the National Institute of Standard and Technology’s certified samples and the strict observance of the quality of the kit are ways to assure you that the kit you are getting is of high quality and is highly effective. With this kit around, you can act quickly once you are alerted so that the problem does not go out of hand.


Ammonia is the most lethal form of inorganic nitrogen produced in aquarium water. The major source of ammonia in a well run aquarium is from solid waste from fish and invertebrates, uneaten food, decaying leaves of plants etc... In an established aquarium Ammonia should be zero and the periodical analytical evaluation of ammonia in the aquarium is needed.

ELOS AquaTest NH4, as well as all the other colorimetric test kit of this line, grant very high precision thanks to several procedures like the use of “RealColor” technology, an accurate system to calibrate the color chart compared to the reagents; the validation of each reagent with NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples and the careful stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch.

Thanks to the use of Lab Quality reagents our NH4 test allows the determination of the Ammonia down to a level of only 0.05 mg/l (ppm) alerting on very low Ammonia presence, thus preventing delicate situations that may occur especially in a reef aquarium.


  • Easy reading: “RealColor” technology.
  • High precision: thanks to the use of calibrated dropper
  • NIST validation: each batch of elos reagents is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

    Comments: Not too difficult to use but it's tough to distinguish the colors on the lower end of the scale. Also it jumps from 0.1 to 0.5 on the color chart. It would be nice if there was a 0.25.

    Comments: This test simply has two many steps. Need to test for pH first, have temp., then read the result from test which almost never matches any of the options on the scale, and finally refer to a table. Disappointed. As I have been with most of the Elos tests.
