Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: 924

Test your reef tank's alkaline levels accurately through the Seachem Reef Status: Magnesium, Carbonate, Borate, Alkalinity Test Kit from Pet Store. This product is designed to check your reef aquarium's alkalinity and levels of other elements such as magnesium, carbonate, and borate. Performing tests are essential as keeping track of these elements' values in the aquarium will help you choose what dosages you should apply to maintain the balance your aquarium's water needs to achieve. This is critical as the growth and development of your corals and marine plants mostly depends on the quality of water and the trace elements contained. Failing to monitor regularly and manage the alkalinity of your aquarium can make your corals less lively and your marine plants may die.

Moreover, the Seachem Reef Status: Magnesium, Carbonate, Borate, Alkalinity Test Kit utilizes a titration-based procedure. Because of this, there is a guarantee of reliable results. The kit may also be utilized as an emergency testing tool for calcium or to confirm the presence of this element in the aquarium. Other than that, this versatile kit can do 75 determinations per test.

Do not forget to check frequently on the buffering capacity of your aquarium, to assure the safety and protection of your corals and other marine plants.

SeaChem Reef Status Magnesium Testing (includs tests for Borate and Carbonate)

Four kits in one! Tests for magnesium through a titration based procedure in increments of 12.5 mg/L. Tests for carbonate alkalinity, borate alkalinity and total alkalinity in 0.1 meq/L resolution through a titration based procedure. The kit resolves borate from carbonate and, along with magnesium, this presents a clear picture of the tank`s buffering capacity as well as a very reliable determination of the critical carbonate content required for coral and coralline growth.
  • 75 titration tests each for borate, carbonate & magnesium
  • directly measures magnesium
  • resolves carbonate and borate
  • interference free
  • includes reference validation
  • designed for the reef aquarist

Excellent!

Comments: A bit complicated at first, all magnesium tests are. they require multiply steps.

I like the kit and the box, it also does a high quality test for alkalinity. it does alot of tests.

If magnesium gets low then your calcium evaporates. BAD

Time consumnig, but accurate Product Review by TOM PICKLES (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I bought this mainly for the Magnesium testing ability, but Borate is handy for those of us with ozone generators. It's relatively time-consuming compared to normal titration tests, but VERY accurate. Results were compared with those given by laboratory-grade equipment where I work and the variance was too slight to be of significance. My comparisons were only done on Magnesium since Borate levels can change quickly as a function of time. Seachem also supplied all utensils required for the test, which was nice.

Magnesium Matters Product Review by OTIS GLAMORE (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: When you first open the case, the response is "how could this be so complicated", but then you realize that this kit contains multiple tests. The magnesium test IS a little complicated, but your magnesium levels are important to know, so I would recommend this kit to anyone with a reef system

Comments: This test realy works! *****

Its complex when you open the box, but after you understood the instructions is very easy to operate and obtain precise results!

When the titration changes completely the collor when obtain the result. (from Pink to Blue (magnasium) or Blue to Yellow in Alk tests...)
