Product name:AZOO NO3 TEST (Nitrate test kit)

Description

For freshwater, aquatic plant, saltwater, reef aquariums and ponds

Nitrate is the final product when bacteria decompose protein. It is also the product when nitrifying bacteria oxidate NH3, NO2. The resource of NO3 is from fishes\' excreta, residual baits, and dead fishes. NO3 is also the nutrient resource of algae. When NO3 level is too high, it will result in heavy algae growing. Meanwhile, it will influence the fishes health when live in high NO3 surroundings. It also will restrain water plant\'s uptaking of Ca, Mg, and Fe, and cause the malnutrition of water plants. Therefore, NO3 value should be maintained below 5 mg/l in water plant aquariums.

 

ANALYSIS:
1. Obtain the reading value of the test result by comparing with the calibration on the first line of the

After shaking, leave 5ml of the water in the sample vial, then repeat the same testing procedure.
Obtain the reading value resulting from this repeated test by comparing with the fourth line on the
color chart : 0, 50, 100, 200, 400 mg/l. Hence, the maximum testable level can reach 400 mg/l.
5. If the tested value exceeds 400 mg/l, please have a partial water change to improve the water quality.
