Salifert "Big 3" Professional Testing Combo

Salifert KH/Alkalinity Professional Test

  •  Calcium is not the only substance needed to form the skeletal material of corals and allow calcareous algae to grow.
  •  Carbonate and bicarbonate are needed and these two substances can have a major effect on stabilizing pH levels in the aquarium in the correct range of 8.1 to 8.4.
  •  The total carbonate and bicarbonate concentration is also called alkalinity or carbonate hardness and for a stable system the alkalinity should not fluctuate by                       more than 5% from the optimum level of approx. 2.8 meq/L i.e. a maximum fluctuation of 0.14 meq/L.
  •  The Salifert test is sensitive enough to detect small changes in levels of alkalinity, measuring in steps of 0.1 meq/L and demonstrating a very sharp color change.
  •  Sufficient for 100 to 200 tests.
  •  The Salifert KH + pH buffer additive makes correction of the alkalinity or carbonate hardness simple and does not upset the pH of the system
  •  Can be used for marine water, freshwater and garden pond water 

Salifert Calcium Professional test

  • Calcium is a major constituent of coralline algae, the skeletal material of hard corals and the skeletal needles of soft/leather corals. In many cases too low levels of  calcium concentration retards coral and coralline algae growth.
  • Calcium also fulfills many important biological functions.
  • In a healthy aquarium, the growth and multiplication of corals, calcareous algae and other organisms can result in calcium depletion. To maintain a stable environment it  is important that the calcium content should not fluctuate by more than 15 mg/L from the optimum range of 420 - 450 mg/L so regular testing should be carried out.
  • This means that any calcium test used should have an accuracy of significantly less than 15mg/L otherwise it will be difficult to monitor such fluctuations.
  • The Salifert test kit measures in steps of 5 mg/L and has an accuracy of 10 mg/L.
  • The color change is precise, detecting small but significant fluctuations in the concentration of calcium.
  • The test is not affected by magnesium.
  • Sufficient for 50-100 tests.
  • Can be used for marine water, freshwater and garden pond water 

Salifert Magnesium Professional test.

  •  Mgnesium is the critical chemical buffer for bicarbonate, calcium and alkalinity.
  •  Magnesium also introduced to help stabilize the ph in an aquarium.
  •  In a healthy aquarium, the growth and wellbeing of all cnidarians (coral), calcareous algae and other organisms can result in Magnesium 
  •  This in turn leads to an unbalanced calcium and alkalinity ratio.
  •  Magnesium should be maintained at levels of 1200 ppm in an average aquarium.
  •  Adequate for up to 50 test.
  •  Salifert Magnesium can be used to test saltwater and freshwater aquariums.
  •  Should be used to test weekly if not daily to maintain proper Magnesium levels.
  •  The magnesium levels should not deviate + - 50ppm.
