Description

Measure the most important reef aquarium levels including calcium, carbonate hardness, phosphate and nitrate with API's Reef Aquarium Master Test Kit. Proper balance is key to the overall health of reef inhabitants. Corals and reef invertebrates like shrimp, crabs and encrusting algae require calcium to grow and proper levels of carbonate hardness to prevent harmful fluctuations in pH. Excess phosphate, which comes from fish waste, uneaten food and other decaying organic matter as well as tap water, can cause algae blooms and affect healthy growth of hard corals. High nitrate levels from fish waste and organic compounds can cause fish disease and algae blooms. This API test kit comes with four different tests that are specifically calibrated to measure these levels in reef aquariums. Just fill the test tubes, add the test drops and compare results to the color card. Then follow the recommendations on the card if needed.

FAQ

What is the difference between API SALTWATER MASTER TEST KIT and API REEF MASTER TEST KIT?

Both of these kits may be used in marine aquariums; however, the API SALTWATER MASTER TEST KIT will allow you to test for ammonia, high range pH, nitrite, and nitrate in your tank, while API REEF MASTER TEST KIT tests for calcium, carbonate hardness, phosphate, and nitrate – all of which need to be maintained at appropriate levels for a thriving reef aquarium.

    Came quick

    By on

    My local petstore does not sell the reef kit, and charges about 15 more for their master test kits. This arrived quick and was a great price compared to other retailers. I still need some tests that this did not come with, such as magnesium and alkalinity, but at least I have most tests now.

    Reef testing made easy

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Found the tests easy to use and helps keep track of the water conditions in my marine tank, it looked like a chemistry set when I first received it but it wasn't difficult at all, even for the beginners.

    Good starter test kit.

    Not as accurate as a Salifert test kit but it will get you in the ballpark.
