Oceanlife: CALCIUM TEST KIT are ICP-OES CALIBRATED

Many corals use calcium to form their skeletons, which are composed primarily of calcium carbonate. The corals get most of the calcium for this process from the water surrounding them. As the calcium level drops below 360 ppm, it becomes progressively more difficult for the corals to collect enough calcium, thus stunting their growth.

The fair value is to be kept in an aquarium of 450 mg / l.

This test allows you to easily and accurately measure the calcium content of seawater.

Knowing the content of calcium in a saltwater aquarium is vital to our corals. Calcium and KH are fundamental to the construction of the calcareous skeleton and the stability of the whole tank.

The clear and simple instructions will guide you to the test in a few quick steps.

The test allows a very high resolution of 2.5 mg / l and the package allows to perform up to 50 measurements with water containing 400 mg / l of calcium.
accurate measurement

For accurate measurement, after the colour change, the solution should remain stable for at least 30-40 seconds. If the solution back to the original colour before this time, add more reagent CA3. When the solution remains stable final colour, you can do the reading.
