Testing water parameters weekly helps prevent invisible water problems that can be harmful to fish. Fish continually release ammonia into the aquarium through their gills, urine and solid waste. Uneaten food and decaying organic matter also add ammonia to the water. Small amounts of ammonia stress fish; large amounts of ammonia kill fish. Ammonia is the #1 killer of freshwater fish. The API AMMONIA TEST KIT for freshwater and saltwater squariums contains two liquid dropper bottles, easy-to-read instructions with information on how to test and correct unsafe water conditions, two color charts and glass test tube with snap-tight cap. This test kit reads ammonia levels from 0 to 8 ppm. Use the API API AMMONIA TEST KIT several times a week for 4-6 weeks when you start a new aquarium, and then use it weekly for monitoring or when problems occur. This aquarium test kit is for use in freshwater and saltwater aquariums. With API Aquarium products, it’s easy to keep a beautiful saltwater, freshwater or reef aquarium. For over 50 years, API has been creating innovative, research-driven solutions that make it easier to care for your fish and aquarium.

When keeping freshwater fish and plants, the general hardness (GH) and carbonate hardness (KH) of aquarium water should match their natural habitat. The API® GH & KH TEST KIT helps you duplicate the natural habitat of your fish to prevent stress, keeping them healthy!

Key Benefits

  • Monitors GH (general hardness) and KH (carbonate hardness) levels for a more natural habitat for your fish.
  • Promotes a more natural habitat and is ideal for a planted aquarium.
  • Helps prevent wide, abrupt pH level changes from low KH levels.
  • Helps fight crusty calcium buildup on the hood and glass of the aquarium.
  • Easy to use and comes with everything you need.

Nitrite is produced in the aquarium in the forms of fish waste, uneaten food, and by nitrifying bacteria in your aquarium’s natural cycle as it breaks down ammonia. Low levels of nitrite inhibit respiration and suppress the immune system, while high levels cause suffocation in fish. The API® NITRITE TEST KIT reads nitrite levels quickly and accurately in your tank, and tests parameters from 0 to 5 ppm.
