API – pH Test Kit
In the box of the API – pH Test Kit, you will receive 250 Tests.
The API® pH TEST KIT monitors pH to maintain healthy freshwater conditions in your tank. pH control is imperative to prevent the harmful effects of overly alkaline or acidic aquarium water on fish and plant life, so take a few minutes each week to maintain and monitor your pH conditions with this easy-to-use kit! Tests read pH from 6.0 – 7.6, and will help you quickly and easily determine whether your levels are too high or too low.
Why Test pH?
pH is the measure of acidity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral. A pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. Maintaining the aquarium at the proper pH ensures optimal water quality. The pH should be tested weekly, since natural materials in the aquarium (such as fish waste and uneaten food) can cause pH changes.
The minimum pH reading for this kit is 6.0 and the maximum is 7.6. Under extreme water conditions, readings below the minimum will read 6.0 and above the maximum will read 7.6. pH adjustments outside the range of this kit will not show any changes until the pH of the aquarium water is within the range of this kit. When keeping livebearers, goldfish, African Cichlids or marine fish and invertebrates use the API HIGH RANGE pH TEST KIT.
Contains 250 tests and includes 1 test bottle, easy-to-ready instructions, glass test tube and color chart
