Oceanlife: CALCIUM & MAGNESIUM 2 in 1 TEST KIT ICP-OES CALIBRATED

Combined calcium-magnesium test for seawater, easy and quick to use. This test was calibrated with an ICP machine. Each lot is calibrated to have a result that is as close as possible to that of the ICP analysis of the calibration sample, taking into account the approximation due to the variability of the test drops.

Calcium

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

Magnesium

Magnesium's primary importance is its interaction with the calcium and alkalinity balance in reef aquaria.

Without the magnesium, the abiotic (nonbiological) precipitation of calcium carbonate would likely increase enough to prohibit the maintenance of calcium and alkalinity at natural levels.

The right value to keep in the aquarium is between 1300 - 1450 mg / l.

This test allows to measure in a simple and precise content of magnesium in seawater .
Knowing the content of magnesium in a marine aquarium is of primary importance for the management dele our tanks . In addition to being directly involved in various biological processes , if its value is low it will not be possible to maintain in solution the calcium and carbonate needed for growth of corals.


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

The test allows a very high resolution of 7 mg / l and the packaging allows to perform up to 50 measurements with water containing 1400 mg / l of magnesium.
