Red Sea Reef Aquarium Testing Kits
The Red Sea Reef Care Program 
Red Sea test kits were recently redesigned and now one of the best aquarium test kits on the market. Some of the newest features include an easy to use titrator, a color wheel and special reagent refill packages which make the kits very economical. The Red Sea Combo test kit packages like the reef foundation pro, algae multi control and color pro kits are packaged in a intuitive way and come at a significant discount. These aquarium test kits include features normally only found in more expensive lab grade test kits. 
 
Red Sea's Complete Reef Care Program is the product of years of research into the physiological demands of a reef aquarium’s SPS, LPS and Soft Corals. The program is divided into 4 distinct, but complementary, sub-programs according to biological process.This program provides you with biologically balanced levels of foundation elements (Calcium, Carbonates and Magnesium), and ensures optimal water conditions for a sustainable, vibrant coral reef. 

A Reef Aquariums foundation elements - Ca, KH, MGA successful coral reef aquarium depends on how well you maintain the water parameters which are the key to a stable coral environment. All of the elements found in natural seawater play a role in providing optimal water parameters, but some are more significant than others. These elements, the foundation of the reef environment, include the three major elements: Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Carbonates (CO3). All three have a major effect on water chemistry (pH stability, Alkalinity, ionic strength) and on many of the coral’s biological processes (skeleton formation, ions exchange, photosynthesis). The foundation elements complement each other in the formation of coral skeleton. If not balanced correctly one of the elements will quickly limit healthy coral growth.
 
 Red Sea Reef Care Test Kits Reef Foundation Test Kits  include individual test kits and the Reef Foundation Pro kits, which combine individual tests in one convenient kit. All of the foundation kits include analytical grade glass vials and an easy-to-use, high precision Titrator.

 Salifert Test Kits
Trusted & Accurate
Salifert is a Holland base company that produces top of the line test kits as well as tank additives and foods for marine and reef aquariums.With a wide range of high grade test kits that are both trusted and accurate, yet easy to use. Salifert Test Kits are the Number One Choice for nearly all marine and reef hobbyists.

  Red Sea Nitrate Test Kit 
Salifert KH/Alkalinity Test Kit
Salifert KH/Alkalinity Profi-Test
•Calcium is not the only substance needed to form the skeletal material of corals and allow calcareous algae to grow. Carbonate and bicarbonate are also needed and these two substances can have a major effect on stabilizing or buffering pH levels in the aquarium in the correct range of 8.1 to 8.4.
•The total carbonate and bicarbonate concentration is also called alkalinity or carbonate hardness and for a stable system the alkalinity should not fluctuate by more than 5% from the optimum level of approx. 2.8 meq/L i.e. a maximum fluctuation of 0.14 meq/L.
•The Salifert test is sensitive enough to detect small changes in levels of alkalinity, measuring in steps of 0.1 meq/L and demonstrating a very sharp color change.
•Sufficient for 100 to 200 tests.
•The Salifert KH + pH buffer additive makes correction of the alkalinity or carbonate hardness simple and does not upset the pH of the system
•Can be used for marine water, frewshwater and garden pond water

    Salifert Calcium Test Kit 
 Salifert Calcium Test Kit
In a healthy aquarium, the growth of corals, calcareous algae and other organisms can result in calcium depletion. To maintain a stable environment it is important that the calcium content should not fluctuate by more than 15 mg/L from the optimum range of 420 - 450 mg/L so regular testing should be carried out. This means that any calcium test used should have an accuracy of significantly less than 15mg/L otherwise it will be difficult to monitor such fluctuations.
•The Salifert test kit measures in steps of 5 mg/L and has an accuracy of 10 mg/L.
•The color change is precise, detecting small but significant fluctuations in the concentration of calcium.
•The test is not affected by magnesium.
•Sufficient for 50-100 tests.

    Salifert Ammonia Test Kit 
Salifert Ammonia Test Kit
Very useful during cycling a new aquarium or after antibiotic treatments, this Ammonia test will measure the total ammonia and ammonium in the aquarium. Ammonia and ammonium should be rapidly converted by aerobic nitrification into nitrite and then nitrate and finally into nitrogen gas. If this does not happen then either the aquarium is not fully matured or there is a problem with the tank`s biological system, which can be caused by an excessive biological loading being placed on the system.

This test kit has two reagent bottles, a test cylinder and measuring syringe and is capable of 50 tests. The color chart scale will read ammonia levels as low as 0.25 PPM (mg/L). Care should be taken to avoid contact with the reagents. This kit is or use with freshwater or marine aquariums.

   Salifert Ammonia Test Kit 
Salifert Nitrite Test Kit
In a properly cycled aquarium, nitrite is converted to nitrate and then, if there are areas deprived of oxygen such as in live rock and other filter materials, this nitrate is converted back to nitrite and then transformed into harmless nitrogen gas.

If this cycle breaks down then nitrites, which are extremely toxic to fish and invertebrates, can form in high concentration.
Many nitrite test kits suffer from interference caused by amines e.g. naturally occurring and essential amino acids. This can result in a too low measured value, especially when the nitrite concentration is relatively low.Because of its unique formulation, the Salifert Test Kit does not suffer from amine interference, and offers full color development within one minute. Also, the color is very intense making the detection of even minute traces of nitrite easy.

The Salifert Nitrite test kit has two different scales: an ultra-low scale for nitrite-nitrogen which ranges from 0.002 - 0.12 mg/L, and a medium scale for nitrite-nitrogen which ranges from 0.02 - 1.2 mg/L. Sufficient for 50 tests.Can be used for marine water, frewshwater and garden pond water

    Salifert Nitrate Test Kit 
Salifert Nitrate Test Kit
When there are insufficient areas of a tank which are deprived of oxygen (anaerobic zones) or denitrification is not taking place properly, nitrate will build up. This can also happen in an aquarium where the biological loading on the system is causing an imbalance e.g. if there is excessive livestock for the aquarium volume or over feeding is occurring.

The build up of nitrate can result in unwanted algae growth and the slowing down of coral growth.The nitrate concentration in a reef aquarium should be lower than 1 mg/L, although fish only aquariums would can usually have a somewhat higher concentration.

Just as with nitrite, many nitrate test kits are prone to amine interference which can make the levels of nitrate appear much lower than they actually are. The Salifert test kit does not suffer from such interference and gives accurate and quick results with a total testing time of less than 3 minutes.

The test kit’s range goes from a very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.2 - 100 mg/L as total nitrate). This test offers two ranges:Low range: 0.2 - 10 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.
Medium range: 2 - 100 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.
Sufficient for 50 tests.

     Salifert PH Test Kit 
Salifert PH Test Kit
The pH value in a marine tank has a major impact on the growth of corals and calcareous algae and on many biological processes.

The pH should not be allowed to fluctuate more than approx. 0.2 units during any 24 hour period and should preferably be kept above 8.2.

If the pH is too low then the cause may be a too low alkalinity and/or a build up of carbon dioxide caused by insufficient aeration

A low pH can be corrected by improving aeration and by increasing the alkalinity.

The Salifert Test Kit is sufficiently accurate to monitor minor pH fluctuations and is scaled from pH 7.4–8.7.

Sufficient for 50 tests.

For marine water only.

Salifert Copper Test Kit
Copper is often used as a treatment for parasite infested fish and it is essential that the correct concentration is used as too high levels can be toxic to marine fish and invertebrates.

Tap water can also be naturally high in copper and it is therefore advisable to test for this on a regular basis.

The Salifert test kit offers a very sensitive and accurate test for measuring dissolved or weakly chelated copper with a pH of 7.5–9.

Lasts for several copper cures or provides sufficient for up to 50 tests on tap or aquarium water as a routine check.

Ca be used for marine, fresh and garden pond water

Note: Strongly chelated copper will only be partly or not at all detected.

Salifert Ammonia Test Kit 
Salifert Flatworm Exit

Flatworm eXit itself is quite safe to fish and invertebrates. However, the body juice of flatworms can be toxic to some reef inhabitants when present in a too high concentration. This body juice is sometimes excreted when flatworms die.

So when you use this product it is important to do the following first:
Siphon out as many flatworms as possible.
Keep sufficient fresh activated carbon in a canister ready.
Turn off UV, ozone and remove activated carbon. Keep the skimmer turned on.

Important remarks- Below given remarks are a.o. meant to reduce the amount of the flatworm`s toxic body juices in the water.

Many people have treated their reef tank(s) successfully using Flatworm Exit without any problems. The most important factors are reducing the number of flatworms before commencing with the treatment and reducing the amount of the flatworm`s body juice, released when they die, as fast as possible.

What's in the Box: 10mL of Flatworm Exit liquid, instruction manual
