NITRITE TEST KIT
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.

Keep toxic nitrite levels at bay by testing regularly with API Nitrite NO2 Fresh & Salt Water Aquarium Test Kit. Nitrate is produced by nitrifying bacteria in the biological filter as it breaks down ammonia. Detecting unhealthy nitrite levels by testing is important so that you can take action and protect your fish. Kit includes test solution, glass test tube and color chart. Simply add 5 drops of test solution to water sample in test tube, and match results with the color chart. Follow recommendations if any action needs to be taken. Kit tests nitrate levels from 0 to 160 ppm.

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.
