If you have an aquarium, you surely know that there's one compound you need to keep an eye out for - ammonia. This gas with a telltale pungent odor is harmful to fish, corals and plants. If it is present in high levels in your aquarium, it will bring the oxygen levels down, which of course, means bad news to fish and corals because this means they will not be able to breathe properly. If fish and corals can't breathe properly, they can't release enough carbon dioxide for your aquatic plants
. As you can see, everything in the tank is affected.
Make sure that the ammonia levels in your tank remain in very low levels at all times by using testing kits such as the SeaTest or the FasTest kits. These kits can detect ammonia and its corresponding levels quickly and conveniently. They come with color charts to explain the results, and better yet, the colors are easily detectable. Best of all, these kits are quite affordable that there is no reason for you not to do regular tests.
However, the reagents of these kits have expiry dates, and may even expire earlier when stored in heated areas. If the reagents for ammonia have expired, you can always get the Aquariums Systems Instant Ocean Reagent Ammonia Test Kit Refill from Pet Store
. This refill works with the aforementioned SeaTest or the FasTest kits.
The Aquariums Systems Instant Ocean Reagent Ammonia Test Kit Refill, like their original counterparts, react fast to the presence of ammonia so you'll surely get accurate readings.
