Do you wish you could see all pollutants in your fish tank? Do you ever wonder if there is an easy way to determine if your aquarium is in grave danger of algal bloom? Phosphates dissolves in water, hence, you cannot see it, even more so predict an increase in its concentration. Phosphates are not removed by simple filtration systems so when you use tap water, it is likely that your tank has it. Uneaten food and excrements are also sources of phosphates. When this compound increases, an algal bloom may occur, and this is bad news for your aquatic creatures.
Know when to change water with Elos Aqua Test Kit - Phosphate from Pet Store
. Elos has manufactured several test kits for aquariums and this time, they made you something very essential. This product features a reliable technology called RealColor, which allows you to compare concentrations of phosphates. You take a sample from your tank, follow the instructions regarding use of the Elos "Safe reagents" or low risk reagents and determine the level of phosphate your fish are swimming in.
Elos Aqua Test Kit - Phosphate can detect 0.01 mg/l (ppm) of phosphate, which is the maximum value allowable in a saltwater tank
. So if you tested your aquarium and got this value, it is time to change the water.ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- PHOSPHATE
Phosphate (PO4) build up in aquariums appears to be a fairly common problem in freshwater and saltwater aquariums. They are present in most tap water supplies and are also introduced to aquarium water through fish waste, uneaten fish food, and decaying plant and invertebrate material. Hobbyists end up with rising levels of PO4, leading to the appearance of algae that start to cover the tank panes, the substrate and just about anything else in the tank. The maximum value of PO4 in an aquarium is 0.01 mg/l (ppm) for saltwater aquarium and for fresh water aquarium is 0.5 mg/l (ppm). In deeply planted aquarium the maximum level can achieve up to 1 mg/l (ppm). The periodical analytical evaluation of phosphate in the aquarium should be considered by the serious aquarium enthusiast.
ELOS AquaTest PO4, 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. Our PO4 test, allows the determination of the Phosphate down to a level of only 0.01 mg/l (ppm) Phosphate presence.
- Easy reading: "RealColor" technology.
- High precision: thanks to the use of calibrated droppers
- 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 kit are based on Toxic Reagents.
