Tropic Marin Saltwater Nitrite/Nitrate Test Kit
This kit is designed for the determination of the nitrite and nitrate concentration in saltwater. Nitrite (NO2-) is the intermediate stage of the aerobic nitrification and is highly toxic for fish and invertebrates. If the concentration of Nitrite is too high, it impedes the oxygen transport in the blood and severely restricts cellular respiration. Nitrate (NO3-) is the final stage of the aerobic nitrification and impairs the well being of fish and invertebrates to a lesser degree. High concentrations can accelerate algae growth and also impede the growth of select corals. An oxygen shortage in the aquarium may cause the reduction of nitrate to poisonous nitrite. Using this test you can accurately see the levels with the finely tuned color chart.
- Accurately determines levels of Nitrites and Nitrates
- Easy to use, follow instructions and color chart
- Reagents of this combined test are enough for approximately 40 test
