Phosphate can enter your aquarium through tap water, fish waste, and decaying organics such as uneaten food and dead algae. Excess phosphate contributes to unsightly algae and green water blooms, and in saltwater, excess phosphate can inhibit the growth of hard corals.
The API® PHOSPHATE TEST KIT tests phosphate levels from 0 to 10 ppm so that you can easily monitor the condition of your aquarium water and may be used in both fresh and saltwater aquariums.
Contains 150 tests and includes 2 test solutions, easy-to-ready instructions, glass test tube and 2 color charts
For what type of tank is API PHOSPHATE TEST KIT most appropriate? Why should I test for phosphate?
Phosphate enters your aquarium through fish and invertebrate waste, and excess phosphate can cause problematic conditions in your tank. Use the API PHOSPHATE TEST KIT to test for high phosphate levels weekly. It may be used for both marine (saltwater) and freshwater aquariums.
