Salifert Phosphate Test Kit

Salifert Phosphate Test Kit
Phosphate has several negative effects if present in a too high concentration. First of all, undesirable algae growth might result - making the aquarium an unpleasant sight!

Phosphate also blocks or retards the growth of corals and coralline algae. One of the scientific studies shows that a phosphate concentration higher than 0.05 mg/L decreases the growth of coralline algae by 90%!

Washing fish food, which is a rich source for phosphates, in a sieve after thawing reduces the input of phosphate tremendously. Also avoiding use of phosphate-rich low-grade activated carbon helps keep phosphate levels as low as possible. Checking the activated carbon for phosphate prior to use is therefore highly recommended.

Since phosphate can have major consequences when present in a concentration above 0.05 mg/L, a test kit should be able to detect even lower concentrations.

Salifert phosphate test detects, within seconds, 0.015 mg/L of phosphate. This makes phosphate measurement highly reliable and informative, allowing timely measures to be taken.
