Oceanlife: NITRATES TEST KIT are ICP-OES CALIBRATED

Nitrate itself is not particularly toxic at the levels usually found in aquaria, at least as is so far known in the scientific literature. Nevertheless, elevated nitrate levels can excessively spur the growth of zooxanthellae, which in turn can actually decrease the growth rate of their host coral.

Nitrates are less harmful nitrites but in high enough concentrations ruin the colors of the corals and inhibit the growth and promote the appearance of algae.

Recommended concentration should be less than 0.2 ppm nitrate.

This test allows to measure in a simple and precise content of nitrates in the water.

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

Under optimal conditionsthe test solution does not change color.

The test allows allows you to perform well up to 50 measurements. This test should be performed at regular interval to prevent any problems.
