WELCOME TO OUR TEST KIT PAGE
DK HARDNESS test kit. This is an accurate alkalinity test kit. Each drop equals
1 dKH. For best results, your tank should be run at 8 to 18 degrees German Hardness.
Code 81550..30mls Large size (30ml). $15.00
COMPARE: A 15 ml test kit will cost over $15.00 in a local stores!! This kit is 30 mls and is very accurate.
Pinpoint pH meter
Calibration fluid pH 7 & pH 10....... 25 ml each Comes in a 60 ml bottle and cap
for easy storage and recalibration of your probe. This allows you to re-use your
calibration fluid and provides a handy storage vial also. Your pH probe just fits in the
Code 87590.. pH 10.solution
AC to DC 9 Volt supply
NOTE: For proper operation, a pH meter should be calibrated once per month. A
reef pH meter should use pH 7 & 10 NOT pH 4. Probe replacement is only required when
the unit will not function properly. Always keep your probe submerged. Both calibration
fluids are required for calibration of pH meter.
REEF TIP: Do you want to learn how sensitive your Reef is to pH swings? Set up a pH meter on continous operation and watch the swings from am to pm. See what happens when you run out of Kalkwasser. You will be amazed! Your testing will be reduced to once per month.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON CHEAP CALCIUM TEST KITS THAT DON'T WORK.
WE HAVE TRIED THE RED SEA KIT AND IT IS NEITHER ACCURATE OR REPEATABLE. YOU WILL
NOT BE ABLE TO KNOW WHAT YOUR REAL CALIUM LEVELS ARE WHEN YOU USE IT. THE ACR TEST
KIT IS BASED ON THE INDUSTRIAL STANDARD METHOD USED FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS.
CALCIUM TEST KIT - Designed for the REEF. High Quality with a low Price and
economy in mind.. Based on the industry standard testing procedure with quality reagents
and equipment with equal accuracy to the best in the trade.(same titrant test) 50+ tests.
Comes with NaOH reagent, testing vial, 1ml pipet, 1ml syringe, indicator tablets, and EDTA
titrant and instructions PLUS a nozzle cap so that you can make up a DI (demin. water)
cleaning bottle. You can purchase Demin Water (no Calcium) at your local supermarket. Your
RO water will not be good enough unless you have a DI pack with it. This kit has twice the
sensitivity of the LaMotte test kit and gives you the most accurate method of determining
your Calcium level. available NOTE: Some people have difficulty with the end point from
purple to blue due to possibly a small color blindness. Solution is to add no more then
two drops once the solution turns purple. You have reached the end point. Record the
value. It is simple and accurate.
COMPARE: To import a very similar test kit (Lamonte) into Canada cost us $52.+ but
our's is twice as sensitive allowing greater accuracy in determining your Ca levels. Plus
our kit comes with a standard to ensure your results are correct over the years that you
Magnesium Test Kit- Here is an accurate test kit for determining the magnesium
in your reef. Magnesium must be maintained at 1450 ppm so that your calcium and dKH will
be maximized. Some reef salts are low in magnesium. For example at a magnesium level of
600 ppm a maximum of 250 Ca will occur in your tank. At about 800-900 ppm magnesium the
maximum calcium is about 375 ppm. If you add our Ultra-Calcium and do not get the expected
increase in calcium concentration then magnesium most likely is the culprit. We have live
sand in our tanks and feed our Ultra-Kalkwasser. Calcium levels are 550-575ppm. dKH is 15
ppm. If your calcium is low due to magnesium then your strontium is also low. Reef tip: If
you can not raise you dKH above 10-11 with Ultra Kalkwasser then you may have a small
chloride build up. Do not worry. Add our Ultra-Buffer (KH Builder) slowly over several
days until your pH increased to 8.3- 8.4 with Kalkwasser. Do not mix Ultra-Buffer with
Ultra Kalkwasser but drip in slowly in a separate line. It is rapid pH changes that effect
inverts the most.
Denitrator: Designed for use in or outside of the aquarium. Size is
4"x9" and comes with a bottle of Bio-Vital Combo and instructions. Contains the
best medium to grow (not plastic bio balls ) and support the needed bacterial populations
to remove ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Soon you will have zero nitrates (<<1 ppm)
It may take 3 to 4 weeks to develop the necessary bacterial population ( For photo see
